Although aimed primarily at teens and young adults, who may be experiencing a significant loss for the first time, the information, guidance, and resources this book offers make it a valuable tool for anyone directly or indirectly affected by grief.
Although a near-universal experience, grief can be very difficult to talk about and handle. Many of the thoughts and emotions that arise during grief are powerful and can be isolating, confusing, and overwhelming. Teens often struggle with loss and may feel alone, betrayed, or guilty. If left unsupported, bereaved adolescents and young adults can develop emotional and behavioral problems or depression, or even become suicidal. Dealing with grief in healthy ways is critical to accepting and adapting to the loss and the changes loss brings.
