"Dr. LaGrand's advice and recommendations reach from and to both heart and head...a powerful and important lesson about grief: that even in grief, we can still grow." —Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, senior consultant, Hospice Foundation of America

Whether the death of a loved one is sudden or follows a long battle with illness, there is no way to prepare for the loss of someone close. However, you do have a choice in how you cope with grief and — most importantly — finding the strength to grow through the pain of your loss.

Grief counseling expert Dr. Louis LaGrand offers 101 pieces of practical, accessible advice to help mourners through the rough sea of their loss, including:

  • Starting each day with an affirmative action
  • Establishing a grief or worry time
  • Planning in advance for birthdays, anniversaries, and important holidays
  • Learning to enjoy new routines
  • Letting go of "if onlys" and "what ifs"
  • Never ruling out happiness

This comforting, yet straightforward book is designed to gently lead you on a new pathway of lasting inner peace by using the one thing you can control: your own response to grief.

Why is it so traumatic, I have just been through the toughest year of my life trying to deal with the death of my Love and my father and there have been many times when I thought that being dead myself would surely be better than trying to deal with the death of two people that were a significant part of my life and all the misery that went with it. What I want to know is, what is the point of grief, why is it so awful to the point that you feel your own life is not worth living, why is the experience so shocking and what do we really gain from it. I know I am not the same person and that everything is different now, I don't view that as a bad thing really but what it took me to get to the other side of this is something I find hard to deal with and I wonder what your thoughts are on grief? Can we ignore it and just get on with our lives because some people seem able to do that, whereas I couldn't carry on, I couldn't even function at all for months and months. Maybe that's a tough journey
