Life after Loss

Life after Loss

A Practical Guide to Renewing Your Life after Experiencing Major Loss

The grief and recovery classic fully revised and updated

Loss is overwhelming. After a loved one’s death, a divorce, an injury or disease, or another major life change, recovery often seems daunting, if not impossible. Life after Loss is the go-to resource for anyone who has suffered a major loss. With great compassion and insight, Bob Deits provides essential wisdom and practical exercises for navigating the uncertain terrain of grief and recovery. Now in its sixth edition, this guide is fully updated with new advice on catastrophic losses, guidance on using technology to foster connections and maintain support networks, and reflections from Deits’ ongoing counseling and his firsthand experiences. After a destabilizing change, Life after Loss helps you to find positive ways to put together a life that is necessarily different–but equally meaningful.

Old grief is as important a work as new grief, and it resurfaces with brand new lessons....Sooner or later, a difficult journey will come knocking (again), igniting the grief process. No one should be without this brilliant healing toolbox of a book.
Maryann Makekau, founder of Hope Matters and coauthor of When Your Grandma Forgets
Loss is a universal experience and too often, because they don't know what to say, well-meaning doctors, friends, and family say, 'Don't worry, you'll get over it.' We never get over a major loss but we can find a way through it to enjoy a full and fulfilling life. In Life after Loss, Bob Deits provides compassionate and practical advice for grieving and rebuilding a meaningful life after loss. As a palliative care physician, I care for people dealing with serious illness and those facing the end of life and their loved ones--where grief and loss are a constant presence. I will recommend this wise and important book as essential reading to all my patients and their families.—Steven Z. Pantilat, MD, Kates-Burnard and Hellman Distinguished Professor of Palliative Care; Director, Palliative Care Program, UCSF; author of Life after the Diagnosis: Expert Advice on Living Well with Serious Illness for Patients and Caregivers
