The GriefWork Companion: Activities for Healing


Inspired by the personal and professional experiences of its authors, “The GriefWork Companion” is an educational book, filled with journaling pages, easy-to-navigate activities, poems and quotations. Contributions from leading experts in grief and loss are included as well. The book is thought-provoking and allows you to express your feelings when ready, without any fear of judgement. 

Chapters include:
  • Let’s Get Started
  • Getting in Touch
  • Telling Your Story
  • Self-Care 
  • Relationships
  • Special Days 
  • A New Normal 
Amy L. Brodsky’s illustrations are warm and creative, inviting a feeling of wanting to sit down in a quiet space with a cup of coffee or tea to take the time to reflect on your feelings and work through the book. The authors note, “Not all activities are applicable for everyone. Use those which seem appropriate and relevant for you.”

Regardless of the type of your loss, this book is a useful tool developed to help everyone heal.
