The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences in life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful it can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect.
These articles will help you to possibly understand some of the grieving process and how we can help ourselves and others through this difficult time.
These articles were written by Dr. Bill Webster and are part of a comprehensive library available. Dr. Webster is the founder and Executive Director of the Centre for Grief Journey. He earned his doctorate at the University of Toronto in 1990, and has been awarded the prestigious Fellow in Thanatology by the Association of Death Education and Counseling (ADEC).
Dr. Webster's knowledge of grief is not just in theory, but from a very difficult personal experience. In 1983, his young wife died suddenly of a heart attack, leaving him not only to cope with his loss, but also to raise his two sons, who were only ages 9 and 7 when their mother died. Dr Webster has become a recognized author, a renowned international speaker and seminar leader, and brings 30 years of experience in the field of grief support and counselling.
