Robert Zucker's Publications

  • The Journey Through Grief and Loss: Helping Yourself and Your Child When Grief Is Shared

    • St. Martin's Press
    • August 2009
    Authors: Robert Zucker

    When adults face a significant loss,not only must they grapple with their own grief, but they are often called upon to nurture and support their grieving children. This book addresses this very common yet often ignored dual-grieving challenge. If your own grief has made it difficult for you to be fully available to your child, this book provides a measure of comfort. The Journey Through Grief and Loss will reassure you that even while grieving, you can still be an effective parent.
