In an effort to better serve clients, colleagues, and the general public, the Center for Grief Recovery (the Center) is providing this free website-based bibliographic resource to broaden and deepen your knowledge and access to grief recovery related materials. Our aim is to support, encourage, offer hope and guidance to anyone, free of charge, wrestling with the meaning of their lives and the lives of loved ones in the wake of loss.
Materials included have been identified based on years of experience and use, and range from the imminently practical, personal and immediately accessible, to the profound, theoretical and historically sound. Most clinicians at the Center feel kinship with psychoanalytic and existential schools of thought and the bibliography for professionals reflects those preferences. However, the reader will find many books and resources that speak directly to the mourner in plain and direct language as well.
If you are a clinician seeking guidance with a case, or a deeper appreciation of the thanatological and bereavement fields, then you will find an entire list of required reading derived from a doctoral level grief studies seminar.
If you are currently grieving or anticipating grief we have collected some of the most respected books and online resources for you to explore on your own. Many of the resources fall under a general topic and others are segmented into specific topics to help you find what you are looking for as quickly as possible.
We are always looking for ways to make your experience using our website as simple and useful as possible. To that end, we welcome your feedback regarding this resource. You can access this resource by logging on to www.griefcounselor.org
