Sooner or later we all have to deal with it: a family member, friend or acquaintance comes face to face with death. "I'm With You" by Kirsten DeLeo offers practical advice for when you don't know what to do or say. In addition, the book helps you to be present when you feel helpless in the presence of someone who is dying, and to feel and show love when loss is just around the corner.
Each chapter of 'I am with you' contains exercises that help you to be more present and to deal with your emotions during bereavement counselling. In addition, you will find experience stories from the author and practical tips and quotes from spiritual leaders, poets and writers to guide you in this.
