About the Book:

Stay connected to your person, yourself, and the world around you in the aftermath of loss.

Modern Loss is all about eradicating the stigma and awkwardness around grief while also focusing on our capacity for resilience and finding meaning. In this interactive guide, Modern Loss cofounder Rebecca Soffer offers candid, practical, and witty advice for confronting a future without your person, honoring their memory, dealing with trigger days, managing your professional life, and navigating new and existing relationships. You’ll find no worn-out platitudes or empty assurances here. With prompts, creative projects, innovative rituals, therapeutic-based exercises, and more, this is the place to explore the messy, long arc of loss on your own timeline—and without judgment.

My Thoughts:

I’m drawn to books about grief and loss, whether they be fiction or nonfiction. Like the author of this handbook, I believe grief is an individual journey. The Modern Loss Handbook is filled with interactive activities and thoughtful prompts. It’s a judgment-free zone, and a path you can tailor to your own needs.

Personally, I’m grateful to have this as a tool in my arsenal to help me process feelings I often keep to myself. Sometimes we can overwhelm others or even ourselves with intense emotions, and the activities here are a great way to channel those feelings into something perhaps productive and most importantly healing.

Bottom line, what impresses me most is the practicality of the methods within the book. I’ve had many a self-help book that were theoretical and wordy, but this book is all about the practice in a user-friendly format.

I received a gifted copy.
