Julia Samuel is a grief psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience working with families who have been bereaved.
This is Samuels first book, and hopefully she will write more, she writes with clarity and kindness as she shares a wealth of understanding and information about grief. It is a valuable read for many professionals especially those in health, counselling and education. It is also a helpful for anyone who has been or is supporting someone who is bereaved.
The author draws on experiences of her patients and her own knowledge to describe different experiences of grief including death of a parent, child, sibling, and partner. Along with her own warm and empathic descriptions of grief she offers some practical ideas of how to work with grief and survive it.
