The Five Ways We Grieve: Finding Your Personal Path to Healing After the Loss of a Loved One, by Susan A. Berger
.
.
.
"In this new approach to understanding the impact of grief, Susan A. Berger goes beyond the commonly held theories of stages of grief with a new typology for self-awareness and personal growth. She offers practical advice for healing from a major loss in this presentation of five basic ways, or types, of grieving. These five types describe how different people respond to a major loss. The types are:

• Nomads, who have not yet resolved their grief and don’t often understand how their loss has affected their lives
• Memorialists, who are committed to preserving the memory of their loved ones by creating concrete memorials and rituals to honor them
• Normalizers, who are committed to re-creating a sense of family and community
• Activists, who focus on helping other people who are dealing with the same disease or issues that caused their loved one’s death
• Seekers, who adopt religious, philosophical, or spiritual beliefs to create meaning in their lives

Drawing on research results and anecdotes from working with the bereaved over the past ten years, Berger examines how a person’s worldview is affected after a major loss. According to her findings, people experience significant changes in their sense of mortality, their values and priorities, their perception of and orientation toward time, and the manner in which they “fit” in society. The five types of grieving, she finds, reflect the choices people make in their efforts to adapt to dramatic life changes.

By identifying with one of the types, readers who have suffered a recent loss—or whose lives have been shaped by an early loss—find ways of understanding the impact of the loss and of living more fully."

Resilient Grieving: Finding Strength and Embracing Life After a Loss that Changes Everything, by Lucy Hone, PhD
.
.
.
"The death of someone we hold dear may be inevitable; being paralyzed by our grief is not. A growing body of research has revealed our capacity for resilient grieving, our innate ability to respond to traumatic loss by finding ways to grow—by becoming more engaged with our lives, and discovering new, profound meaning.

Author and resilience/well-being expert Lucy Hone, a pioneer in fusing positive psychology and bereavement research, was faced with her own inescapable sorrow when, in 2014, her 12-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident. By following the strategies of resilient grieving, she found a proactive way to move through her grief, and, over time, embrace life again.

Resilient Grieving offers an empowering alternative to the five-stage Kübler-Ross model of grief—and makes clear our inherent capacity for growth following the trauma of a loss that changes everything."

Grief Day by Day: Simple Practices and Daily Guidance for Living with Loss by Jan Warner
.
.

"Grief is complex; it may present itself differently on any given day. This grief recovery handbook offers daily reflections and practices that address the day-to-day emotions and experiences that accompany the grieving process so you can create a life in which peace―and even gratitude―can coexist with your grief.

Explore the stages of grief with a collection of quotes, musings, meditations, and more that are tied together by a weekly theme, allowing you to reflect on each concept in depth. Work through topics like loneliness, grief attacks, exhaustion, hope, love, and creating meaning. You’ll find opportunities to write, draw, meditate, do breathing exercises, and more as you learn to live fully with your grief."

I went to a group meeting over a year ago following the passing of my wife as a result of her battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer. I was so glad I did. It has now been two years and I wrote about the caregiving, her death and the aftermath. I wanted to share it here in case anyone might benefit from sharing similar thoughts and feelings.
