The inevitable losses of life range from small to overwhelming. Often we feel we should brush them aside quickly, partly because they hurt, and partly because we're supposed to "move on." This wise book explains how unresolved losses persist far longer than we realize, leaving us vulnerable to all kinds of distress. It shows beginning and experienced therapists alike how to help themselves and their clients to face, grieve, and grow from loss. Ginny Pizzardi offers a bold call to courageous self-exploration and deep acceptance.

In this provocative little book the author explores how to move beyond unresolved childhood loss that is frequently at the heart of our greatest challenges, be it addiction, sexual, emotional or physical abuse, divorce, or virtually any experience where significant change is vital. Packed into these pages is the wisdom of a dedicated therapist whose own experiences of early childhood loss can deepen every helping professional's understanding and skill. Here are insights and tools for moving beyond current crises to a place of greater peace, resolution, and personal effectiveness.
