A Guide For Adultsby Lois F. Akner and Catherine Whitney
Published by Quill
Publication date: December 1994
Synopsis:This book is intended for adult readers who are seeking support following the death of a parent, either recently or some time in the past. Loss of a parent is one of the most difficult experiences in life. The bond between parent and child is a powerful one, and death may bring up issues long forgotten or never resolved.
Akner uses real-life stories from participants in her popular workshops to illustrate the range of reactions people may have when a parent dies. She suggests ways to take care of unfinished business that must be addressed as part of the healing process.
