Praise For Guiding Your Child Through Grief
"Absolutely the right book for the family that needs it."
–Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen To Good People
"A monumental contribution to the countless children who can be helped to cope with the loss of a loved one instead of left unassisted because the adults around them lack an awareness of their needs."
–Therese Rando, Ph.D., author of How to Go On Living When Someone You Love Dies
"An excellent resource to help you bring forth what is within your child, your self and your family so it does not destroy any of you. The tears of unexpressed grief extinguish life’s bright candle. Read on and light the dark tunnel so others may follow.
–Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine & Miracles and Prescriptions for Living
"With the Emswilers’ vast experience, I know of no one who can offer such compassion, comfort, and guidance during the lonely and painful times of a child’s grief–An exceptional book."
–Rabbi Earl Grollman, author of Talking About Death: A Dialogue Between Parent and Child
"An excellent resource for parents, whether they are just beginning to help their children and themselves adjust to the anticipated or recent death of a family member, or whether they are looking for insight into supporting further adjustment several years later. Clinicians, counselors, teachers, and other members of the broader community will also benefit from reading this book so that they, too, can learn how to help children and their families deal with a loss."
–David J. Schonfeld, M.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Child Study, Yale University School of Medicine
"I wish Guiding Your Child Through Grief could be in the hands of every parent with a child or adolescent grieving a death. Of special help is their section on the challenges of stepparenting children after the death of a parent."
–Donna L. Schuurman, Ed.D, Executive Director, The Dougy Center for Grieving Children, Portland, Oregon
