Book Description

1 Oct 2007
A self-help book for grieving teenagers and their parents, written by highly credentialed, mother/daughter, international grief experts. Teenage grief is hard, lonely and painful. Parents want to know: How can I help? Teen Grief Relief provides both parents and teens with the help they need. Shared here are teen stories, feelings, techniques, references and resources for use in not only surviving but thriving after the painful loss of a family member or close personal friend. The journey can be hard and sad, but Teen Grief Relief can be a welcome and comforting companion. Included: * Understanding emotional extremes, * When and how to talk about a death, * Understanding parents, * Understanding anger and guilt, * Aspects of normal grief, * Warning signs of complicated grief, * Finding balance and happiness, and * Teen-tested “Good4U” steps. What Others Say “Teen Grief Relief is an important book with groundbreaking information for a teen who has lost a family member or a friend. If we’d only had this information before our fifteen-year-old son Jeff took his own life...” —Eric Hipple, former Detroit Lions quarterback and Suicide Prevention Advocate “Teen Grief Relief is a moving, must-have book, written by that most unusual breed of experts — those who have been there. I wish I’d had it when my brother died.” — Elizabeth DeVita-Raeburn, sister of Ted, whose life was loosely portrayed in the John Travolta made-for-TV movie, The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Elizabeth is the author of The Empty Room: Surviving the Loss of a Brother or Sister at Any Age

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped us with our grief 24 July 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives great advise to parents with grieving teens 10 Dec 2007
By Grieving Mom - Published on Amazon.com
I was given this book by a friend from The Compassionate Friends support group about 3 months after my 17 month old son died unexpectedly. My surviving daughter had just turned 13 years old. The book was very easy to read and understand and gave great suggestions on trying to help a grieving teen regardless of the circumstance. Many grieving teens also have passages in the book that are helpful for me as a mother to try to understand my daughter's struggles. The main thing is knowing that we as parents can't know our teens pain if we haven't experienced the loss of a sibling when we were teens. We have to validate and acknowlegde their pain and suffering. That is very important!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas to start conversations 18 Oct 2013
By David P. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Written for parents helping their children, a powerful introduction with catch the attention of all parties involved. The contradictions inherent in the parent/teen communication process are brought to light. A moderately high reader would do well with this book. A journal is encouraged, even if the entries become irregular over time. Practical tips populate the text. A graffiti wall in honor of the departed is an interesting concept.

I use this book with teenagers who have lost a loved one to cancer. It is a wonderful book. I use it as a resource but also have recommended that my clients and their parent take it home to read. It is a perfect book to normalize a teenagers feelings going through such a difficult time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Depression with grief 17 Sep 2007
By Jane Russo - Published on Amazon.com
After reading Teen Grief Relief I was glad the topic of suicide was brought up. Through this book, teens will realize that sometimes feelings of despair can lead to thoughts of suicide. These thoughts must be talked about to a trusted adult. The signs of depression are listed to help understand when professional help is needed. I recommend this book for parents and teens that are dealing with a loss of a loved one.
