When Will I Stop Hurting?: Teens, Loss, and Grief is a self-help guide for teenagers who are struggling with bereavement and the emotional difficulties it presents. This book provides an overview of grief as a painful but normal process, and it offers insights from bereavement experts as well as practical suggestions for coping with loss, including accounts from teens. This book closes a gap in the available literature on grief and bereavement that has tended to focus on adults and younger children. It provides a warm, accessible resource that will reassure teen readers about the normality of grief, encourage their understanding of what happens during the grief process, and provides resources to help teens cope with their experiences of loss. The author accomplishes these goals by explaining the psychology of grief, by providing psychologists' comments and advice on dealing with bereavement, and by offering teens' insights into their own experiences. Teens who are coping with loss and grief, as well as parents and other relatives, teachers, psychologists, and other adults who are concerned with teens' well being will find this book to be a valuable resource.
