Helping Your Grieving Friend
Many know that my father helped raise the flag on Iwo Jima. After the war, John Bradley was a funeral director and an admirer of Dr. Donald Steele. My father always said, "Funerals are about the grieving survivors,” and he read books about the psychology of grief. Now Dr. Steele has written Helping Your Grieving Friend, a smart and sensitive guide on how you can make a difference at a difficult time.
“As a licensed Funeral Director with over 35 years of experience, I highly recommend "Helping Your Grieving Friend," by Dr. Donald Steele. It is a key to a healthier grieving experience. In a concise and simple format, Dr. Steele explains what we can expect, how torespond, what to say and what to avoid. It's an easy to follow guide for friends, clergy, health care workers or anyone trying to help!”
William J. Gately, MA, LMHC and licensed Funeral Director
“Dr. Steele's book is "right-sized" for the friend or family member wanting to know how to help. We have all said, at some time or another, "I don't know what to say" or "I don't know how to help." This book offers the answers--nothing more, nothing less. Starting with an explanation of grief that is both practical and profound, the book offers not only tips but understanding. We have all walked with a friend through grief. Reading this book will help you do it with more confidence and competence the next time a friend or family member experiences the loss of a loved one. Highly recommended.”
