Lessons in Loss and Living
Hope and Guidance for Confronting Serious Illness and GriefBook - 2010
Psychotherapist Dr. Michele Reiss specializes in helping clients cope with life-threatening illnesses and helping their families through the grieving process. She counseled Randy Pausch, author of The Last Lecture, and his wife, Jai, as Randy was dying of pancreatic cancer. Here, Dr. Reiss provides comfort and counsel for readers who are coping with the challenges of serious illness or grief. Through real-life examples of people who have dealt with cancer and other illnesses, she has given us a book about hope and the art of living and loving well, despite significant adversity. Dr. Reiss also reminds us that it should not take a life-threatening illness, or loss, or trauma to awaken us to living each day with joy, blessings, passion, and purpose.--From publisher description.
