Chapters tackle the neurological, cognitive, emotional, and social effects of childhood grief and demonstrate the ways in which those reactions can manifest in the classroom.

The book incorporates theoretical explanations of grief responses as well as practical suggestions for supporting bereaved children in real-world settings. Whether the loss affects one child or the entire student body, educators can turn to this comprehensive guidebook for ways to support grieving students in their classrooms.

A 66-day plan for going sugar-free from an eating disorder specialist and therapist who broke free of her own sugar addiction. Our relationship with food can be complicated: for many, food soothes painful emotions, it nurtures, it numbs, it provides a 'high'. Breaking Up With Sugar offers a plan for the complete transformation of many people's destructive relationship with food. For these people, sugar is often the culprit: it produces physical, neurological and endocrine changes that render the individual powerless over their compulsion to eat. Molly Carmel struggled with her own eating disorder for over 20 years and finding no solutions in available treatments, she created The Beacon, where she helps clients recover from similar addictions. Her step-by-step instructions are designed to take the guesswork out of sugar-free eating and help people start a new, healthier relationship with food. With 8 vows to return to and rely on, and guidance on how to divorce dieting forever, Breaking Up With Sugar offers an individualised, sustainable and realistic plan for eating and thriving for life.

Life’s inconveniences can often lead to seasons of discouragement that can linger for what seems like an eternity. Perhaps you have experienced challenges that were the result of a broken relationship, an unexpected health diagnosis, the loss of a loved one, financial hardship, or other issues that were totally out of your control. Whatever the case, the truth is that unexpected things happen. People get stuck and become discouraged, and life changes as a result. Try as we may to be positive or to exercise mountain-moving faith, some circumstances shake us to the core, and life as we once knew it is never the same again. In the book, I will share with you some of the most trying storms that I have faced as a mother, woman, and cancer survivor. I am convinced that with every unexpected twist and turn life throws at us, we become more resilient. It is my hope that despite the life altering events you have encountered thus far, you will find the courage to see your life through a new set of lenses and thrive. You must believe that you too are a survivor and dying is not an option!

Expanding on Pauline Boss’s seminal work on ambiguous loss, this book explores the complications and deviations from traditional grief when mourning a loss, but not a death—and offers real solutions for healing. Grief isn't always the result of something finite, marking a death or complete end. Soul-shattering grief can also be activated by a dramatic shift in an important relationship, such as a divorce or significant breakup, a life-changing medical diagnosis, or a broken connection with an addicted child. How do we grieve people who are still alive, but no longer who they once were to us? Most people will experience this type of traumatic event over the course of their lifetime, yet the complications of these situations often leave grievers feeling alienated or ashamed. Soulbroken is a guidebook that recognizes this often-misunderstood grief, validates the unique challenges posed by its ambiguity, and champions tools for healing. In it, Stephanie Sarazin presents the ambiguous grief process, offering insights to help readers better understand the nuances of their grief experience when a loved one is not lost to death. With intimate stories of others' path to recovery using Sarazin's advice, this book will help anyone ready to find a way through their own grief, regardless of where they are on their journey.

Along the way she seeks solace from reading about others who have experienced similar loss. Rachael’s family and friends join her on this exploratory journey.
