A Workbook of Activities in Resolving the Dissonances of Grief for Teenagers
Author: Joseph V. Palazzola
Publisher: Strategic Book Publishing
Life is filled with many experiences that young people must cope with each day. One of the most severe situations they will encounter is the death or loss of a parent, relative, or close friend. To help teenagers cope with their grief, author Joseph V. Palazzola has written a workbook to help ease the pain and get youngsters through the seven stages of grief. By using various learning strategies that rely on making personal connections, participants can realize true understanding of the grieving process. Joe is a former educator who has taught in the public schools and at college level. His first wife died at a young age and he was left to raise their son, Chris, who was 15 at the untimely death of his mother. Joe and Chris never really dealt with the loss of their loved one together. They silently grieved alone. They were coping, but not addressing the issue of their mutual loss. Six years after the death of his mother, while a college student, Chris was killed in an industrial accident. Twenty years after the death of Chris, Joe has written a workbook that will help teenagers cope with the pain of losing a loved one. Joe realized how difficult it was for Chris, so he wrote this workbook of activities. He includes many strategies and concepts that he used in his teaching career and information he imparted to his graduate students. This book will help ease the hopelessness and despair in a healthy and logical way. A Detroit-area native, Joseph V. Palazzola has retired from teaching and now resides in Vero Beach, Florida. This is his third book. Publisher's website: http: //sbpra.com/JosephVPalazzola
How Parents Cope With the Death of a Child to Suicide or Drugs
Author: Carol E. Jordan, MS
Publisher: Springer Publishing Company
Category: Family & Relationships
This book fills a critical gap in our scientific understanding of the grief response of parents who have lost a child to traumatic death and the psychotherapeutic strategies that best facilitate healing. It is based on the results of the largest study ever conducted of parents surviving a child's traumatic death or suicide. The book was conceived by William and Beverly Feigelman following their own devastating loss of a son, and written from the perspective of their experiences as both suicide-survivor support group participants and facilitators. It intertwines data, insight, and critical learning gathered from research with the voices of the 575 survivors who participated in the study. The text emphasizes the sociological underpinnings of survivors' grief and provides data that vividly documents their critical need for emotional support. It explains how bereavement difficulties can be exacerbated by stigmatization, and by the failure of significant others to provide expected support. Also explored in depth are the ways in which couples adapt to the traumatic loss of a child and how this can bring them closer or render their relationship irreparable. Findings suggest that with time and peer support affiliations, most traumatically bereaved parents ultimately demonstrate resilience and find meaningful new roles for themselves, helping the newly bereaved or engaging in other humanitarian acts. Key Features: Offers researchers, clinicians, and parent-survivors current information on how parents adapt initially and over time after the traumatic loss of a child Presents data culled from the largest survey ever conducted (575 individuals) of parents surviving a child's suicide or other traumatic death Investigates the ways in which stigmatization complicates and prolongs the grieving process Addresses the tremendous value of support groups in the healing process Explores how married couples are affected by the traumatic loss of their child
