Understanding Grief

Among the many other commemorations in the month of November is National Hospice Month. As part of their effort to reach out to those who are mourning the loss of a loved one, the Hospice of the Rapidan has donated copies of the book Understanding Grief: Helping yourself heal to all three branches of the library. Written by Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt, this book explores common myths and misunderstandings about grieving and addresses critical occasions such as anniversaries and holidays. For information about grief support see their website
