A Path Through Loss is a self-directed workbook to guide the reader through the process of grief. Grief can result from many things: divorce or separation, abuse, unemployment, a serious injury or chronic/terminal illness, death, loss of childhood due to a parent illness or substance abuse, or a life transition, such as career change, a move, or retirement.

You will learn why working with your grief through various means, including journaling, is helpful. You will also become aware of the different issues that affect and prevent or assist healing and growth. Author Nancy Reeves provides practical information and easy-to-use tools to help the reader nurture the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self.

Although it is intended for individual use, it is a valuable resource for counselors, and this updated and revised version includes questions suitable for group discussion. It also includes a section on children and grief.

In A Path Through Loss, Nancy Reeves offers the reader a respectful balance between providing information that reassures and grounds, and offering tools that guide each individual on their unique journey through loss. This book will be of interest to any of us who have experienced a personal and significant loss. For those of us who dedicate part of our professional lives to accompanying individuals working through grief, it is a welcome companion.
