The ABC's of Grief: a Handbook for Survivors meets bereaved persons wherever they might be in the grieving process, providing snatches of meaning, hope, empathy and understanding. It's a product of the author's own grief experience and includes materials collected over a period of three years. Confronting her loss, Christine Adams found that it was all right to grieve at her own pace: one day at time, one thought, word, and letter at a time. Over time, she grew and healed.This Handbook's alphabetical format allows readers to focus on any aspect of grief that suits them. If a newly bereaved person finds themselves absorbed in "anger" or "anxiety," he or she can read that section - then go back to reread those parts of the handbook, and with each visit find some new realizations and meaning. Every section contains appropriate quotations, stories, and poems, written by survivors who found solace in writing.ABC's was written to be both a source of healing information and inspiration. The information is useful in the confusing times of grief, the encouragement of the author is soothing; and the poems and stories remind the reader that others have visited the same places in their grief process. Grieving persons, and even grief groups, have found this book extremely beneficial.
