Grief Recovery for Teens: Letting Go of Painful Emotions with Body-Based Practices (Instant Help Solutions) (Paperback)
Did you know that grief can affect both your mind and your body? In this helpful and healing guide, the director of the Children's Grief Connection offers practices to help you deal with the physical aspects of grief and loss.
If you lose someone you love or are close to, you probably feel a number of emotions--sadness, anger, loneliness, or fear. These are all normal feelings, and it's important that you have someone to talk to, whether it's a family member, friend, or counselor. But did you know that grief can also affect your body? That's because the brain and the body are much more connected than you might think.
In this compassionate guide, you'll discover how your mind can affect the way you feel physically, and discover body-oriented skills to help your body heal after experiencing loss. You'll also find ways to relieve feelings of anxiety and confusion that can make your physical symptoms worse, and finally begin the healing process.
Knowing how your body is affected by grief and loss--and what you can do to relieve the physical and emotional pain--will give you healthy coping skills to last a lifetime. This book will help you learn these skills and start feeling better in both body and mind.
