The last thing many people want to do when they have lost a loved is go to a support group and talk about it. Yet, many times that can be the best thing to do. John Munday, a participant and facilitator of many support groups, has written a simple yet profound "why to" and "how to" book about joining and participating in grief support groups. This book cover the basics: how supports groups operate, why they are often helpful, how to find the right one for you, and what to do when you go to the sessions. It also discusses the place and role of religion and clergy in relation to the bereaved.
Overcoming Grief will be welcomed as a resource by those organizing and running support groups as a way of recruiting and introducing potential participants to the support group process.
