This sensitive explanation of ways to cope with death has been welcomed by clergy, psychologists, bereavement counselors, and those touched by sorrow.

In this expanded edition, Roberta Temes has enlarged both the subject matter and the supplementary material through which people can come to terms with the stages of grief. Among the problems upon which she focuses are: living alone, children and grief, restructuring families, and the effects of suicide on survivors. This new edition also contains an up-to-date listing of resources - films, cassettes, professional services, and literature - for those seeking help.

Blackwell North Amer
Living With An Empty Chair offers a moving and human approach to coping with the painful realities of a loved one's death. Since its original publication, the book has been praised by bereavement counselors, clergymen, psychologists and those touched by sorrow. In this new, expanded edition Dr. Temes has drawn from her extensive professional experience to expand the subject matter suggesting further ways to handle the stages of grief, living alone, restructuring families, exploring children's reactions and rebuilding one's life. It is a deeply moving, beautifully illustrated book which brings insight, comfort and sympathy to those who must contend with grief and that, of course, is all of us.
