Ashley Davis Prend (1997). Transcending Loss : Understanding the lifelong impact of grief and how to make it meaningful. New York, NY. The Berkley Publishing Group.
Comment : Following are author’s own words: “There are many wonderful books available that address acute grief and how to cope with it. But these books often focus on crisis management and imply that there is an ‘End’ to mourning. They essentially fail to address the issue of grief’s ongoing impact, and how it changes through the years…
“This is a book about death and grief, yes, but more important, it is a book about love and hope. I have learned from my experience and interviews with courageous people about pain, struggle, resilience, and meaning. Their stories show that over time you can learn to transcend even in spite of the pain. We all get broken by life sooner or later because loss is the price we pay for living and loving. But experience shows that we can become stronger at the broken places ad find the opportunity in crisis. I hope this book will help you move beyond grief and will guide you on your journey thought times of healing and transcendence.”
