Reassuring and helpful strategies to guide you through your grief

Grief is a natural reaction to loss, but in some cases it can be devastating, causing a loss of direction which can impact our relationships and work.

This practical guide will help you to regain a sense of control and offers tried and tested strategies for adjusting to life without your spouse, friend or family member.

Relentless grief can cause a host of physical problems, including difficulties eating, disrupted sleep and becoming over-reliant on alcohol. It can also lead to serious emotional and psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks and complicated grief. But techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help.

This self-help book covers:
· Coping with the unexpected or long-anticipated death of a loved one
· Establishing a routine and tackling avoidance of difficult issues
· Practical concerns such as making decisions and dealing with birthdays and anniversaries
· Returning to work and planning a new future

OVERCOMING self-help guides use clinically-proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. Many guides in the Overcoming series are recommended under the Reading Well Books on Prescription scheme.
