I bought this book for one of my students who lost his mother in a car accident. He absolutely loves it and that is worth its weight in gold.
Easy to read. Right to the point. We lost my ex husband to a overdose and my son has been pushing the reality of it away and this book is like a road map for healing.

"Healing Your Grieving Heart" has been a good companion for me at this time of losing my mother. Following several of the suggestions have been helpful when sometimes I have felt no help was possible. Even the suggestions I didn't actively use were good to read and slowly take in. Wolflet, has honestly and deeply, not only explored, but felt his subject matter. I never knew grief could be like this. Thank God for this book and others by this caring person.
The main text is in the format of a statement with bullet points and explanations. Readers are encouraged to "Express Yourself" in a journal. The text is easy to read, with the white space making the content less intimidating. The Six Needs of Mourning can help start a teen's path in grieving. It is written to teens for starting discussions with themselves or others.
This book is wonderful. My son passed away at the age of 24 and my 15 year old daughter was finding it hard to find her way through this difficult grieving process. The book touched upon so many important and pertinent facts such as your grief is unique, just like your relationship to the person you lost is unique. Whether it's the loss of a sibling, parent, grandparent or other person in a teen's life, I think this book really addresses many of the issues that teens are concerned with when dealing with a loss in their lives.
Good ideas. Laid out as one idea at a time on each page but some pages have lots of room to spare on the page. I feel that the ideas could have been elaborated on moreso instead of just a few sentences.
Another excellent book about how to deal with your grief, mine was loosing my only son 2 mos. Ago very suddenly. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone grieving.
Such a pleasant little book with tons of ideas to help teens and anyone really, the only problem was getting the teen to read this, but perfect to buy for a younger child who can be guided.
