Finding Hope and Resilience in Grief: Mini E-Book

About This Tool

Few things in life can feel as lonely and as isolating as grief. Feelings like sadness, anger, confusion, depression, ambivalence, exhaustion, regret, guilt, and relief all hang thick in the therapy room as clients share memories of their deceased loved ones. Although their stories may vary, two common threads often emerge: hope and resilience.

In the Confessions from the Couch: Finding Hope and Resilience in Grief mini e-book, grief therapist Jenni Brennan explores 9 of the most common experiences faced by those who are grieving. Confessions From the Couch will leave you feeling seen and validated, all while providing you with a deeper understanding of the grieving process.

Why It Works

I am passionate about grief!

What a funny thing to say, right?

The thing about grief is that we all experience it at some point: perhaps when we lose a parent, a grandparent, a sibling, a spouse, a friend, a child, or anyone that was part of our lives.

Sometimes we grieve not as a result of a death but because circumstances in our lives have changed: relationships end, moves happen, jobs change, futures we thought would go one way suddenly are different.

Grief is everywhere for all of us - yet our society does a poor job allowing people to grieve. Lose a close loved one? Maybe you’ll get 3 paid days off from work. People will bring casseroles and tell you to call if you need anything but then life moves forward and you get the very clear message that you should move on and get over it.

I’m here to tell you that message is wrong. It is ok to grieve and it is normal to struggle with how to continue living your life while dealing with grief.

When you use this grief guide, you are provided with space to grieve, insight around what normal grief actually looks like, and an environment in which you can process all of your feelings.

My experiences as a clinical social worker in hospital, palliative care, and hospice settings as well as my work as a college educator for funeral service professionals, have given me a wealth of information and insight on grief, and I am ready to share all of it with you so that you can begin healing.
