Most of us will experience some form of grief during our lives yet few people have any preparation for handling grief or possess the skills to support family and friends at times of personal loss.

Veteran Australian actor Andrew McFarlane's reading of the best-selling book, 'Coping With Grief,' offers sensitive and practical advice on how to deal with the grieving process, from how to cope with the funeral to managing anniversaries and special dates.

Suitable for both the bereaved and their support team, it explains what to expect emotionally, psychologically and practically from the first day through the first year, as well as outlining the physical and emotional reactions to grief, why men and women react differently, how children deal with grief and some of the long term consequences of bereavement.

Whether you have been bereaved, or are part of the bereaved's support team, this self-help audiobook will prove invaluable, and show you how to survive, or help others survive, the most challenging experience a human being can have: the loss of a loved one.
