Coping with grief by Mal McKissock( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"Most of us will experience grief at some stage of our lives and although grief is most closely associated with coping with the loss of someone close to us - a spouse, a family member, a close friend - through death, we also experience grief in response to other losses, a job, a close relationship, health. In the preliminary research for the ABC's six-part radio series 'Step by Step - coping with grief' it became clear to the production team that few people have any preparation for handling grief or are equipped to support family and friends at times of grief and personal loss. The program on these CDs include valuable information from a wide variety of experts as well as intensely personal contributions from listeners about their own experiences following a loss. The series demonstrates that many responses to grief that may seem frightening and painful, odd and even bizarre are very normal and part of the process of resolving grief."--Back of container jacket
