Selected Journals on Grieving

King's College 16th International Conference on Death and Bereavement

Leo Tolstoy wrote that every time we write we should leave a bit of our blood in the ink pot. The stories in this book do exactly that. The stories are thoughtful, personal and a great testament to the importance of human relationships in all their many forms. 

The stories in this book look at: views by professionals about their work; personal stories by spouses, parents, children and siblings; spiritual aspects of care; the importance of animals in people's lives; philosophical musings; and so much more.

Each story is a short vignette of a person's journey through grief. These are stories about practical things that people have done to help others or to help themselves. One or more of these stories will touch your heart because we have all grieved the death of someone we love. In reading how others have dealt with such loss, we identify how we are coping and what we need to continue to do to help others while also looking at things we might want to do differently so that we don't hurt ourselves or others we love.

This material was gathered at King's College 16th International Conference on Death and Bereavement in London, Ontario, Canada. Everyone who has participated in the project has ensured that their stories are free of error and respect the confidentiality of the people involved as necessary. They retain copyright for their own stories and accept responsibility for what is recorded.
