For patients and family caregivers the journey through illness and transitions of care is characterized by a series of progressive physical and emotional losses. Grief reactions represent the natural response to those losses. Grief is defined by a constellation of physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual manifestations, varying in length and severity. While grief reactions are common and expected responses to loss, they have the potential to cause significant suffering. And, while grief is not a disease, it can develop into a pathological process warranting specialized treatment. Additionally, some aspects of grief overlap with the symptoms of clinical depression and anxiety, making diagnosis difficult. Grief and Bereavement in the Adult Palliative Care Setting provides practical, evidence-based, and clinically effective approaches to understanding the multifaceted nature of grief and bereavement in patients with advanced illness and their caregivers. This handbook is an ideal tool for palliative care providers of various disciplines who provide direct clinical services to patients and family members. It assists clinicians in recognizing and identifying grief reactions as unique expressions of patients and caregivers' history and psychological functioning. Primary care physicians who provide care to patients and families will also find this practical assessment and treatment guide helpful. They will learn how to best support bereaved patients and caregivers when grief is uncomplicated, and when to choose more active interventions that may include appropriate referrals to mental health professionals.

I Am Strong by John Dickerson is the link between your weakness and God’s strength. Can we believe that? You call out to God. Your problems get worse. You suffer and wait for him. And you continue to just wait. It’s what Paul called the thorn in the flesh that bothers us day and night. But Paul learned a special secret about life, which you too can learn. He learned to let weakness be the inlet for God’s strength to rush into his life. “When I am weak”—when I feel my thorn—“then I am strong.” And the truth transformed his life. It can transform yours, too. In its chapters I Am Strong equips you to: -Unlock God’s strength for your difficulties. -Understand how a loving God will resolve the pain in your world. -Know God’s plan for your own inadequacy and hurt. -Overcome your circumstances as Christ and Paul did. -Discover the life-changing power of God’s strength where you are weakest. No matter how dark your night or how deep your pit—your Heavenly Father wants to give you a front row seat as He works good in the midst of your difficulty.

"We are all touched at some point by the dark emotions of grief, fear, or despair. In an age of global threat, these emotions have become widespread and overwhelming. While conventional wisdom warns us of the harmful effects of "negative" emotions, this revolutionary book offers a more hopeful view: there is a redemptive power in our worst feelings. Seasoned psychotherapist Miriam Greenspan argues that it's the avoidance and denial of the dark emotions that results in the escalating psychological disorders of our time: depression, anxiety, addiction, psychic numbing, and irrational violence. And she shows us how to trust the wisdom of the dark emotions to guide, heal, and transform our lives and our world.
