Reviews
"Dr. Rainer’s exceptional book Life After Loss has the rare potential of becoming a valued resource not only for the professional community but also for those they serve. His perceptive and insightful guides for journeying through the process of grief captures the reader in a rare combination of existential and applied interventions that exquisitely invite movement in all realms, affective, cognitive, behavioral and spiritual. This integrative approach invites the reader into a transformative place of healing essential for growth following loss."
~Frieda Farfour Brown, Ph.D., Psychologist and Author, Crisis Counseling and Therapy

"Life After Loss is a “must read” for all clinicians seeking practical knowledge and information to help the grieving person. Dr. Rainer’s work is not only inspirational but also an all-inclusive, clinically astute, and reader friendly exposition on the complex world of grief, loss, mourning, and bereavement. This text takes its reader on an instructional journey from historical roots to current practice. Highlights of this journey include, but are not limited to, concise definitions, grief differentiation, emotional response patterns, grief counseling, social ceremonies, multicultural implications, spiritual, legal and ethical considerations, and special issues. These highlights are complimented by poignant case examples that enhance both content and reader interest. I encourage you to take this instructional journey and enhance both knowledge and skill’s application in dealing with the grieving person."
~Douglas R. Gross, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Counseling and Counseling Psychology, Arizona State University
