Full Description

A leading grief expert answers some of the most frequently asked questions about grief and loss, offering hopeful real-world lessons. 

If you’ve experienced the trauma of loss, you might find yourself struggling with the “whys” of grief: Why can’t I remember anything? Why can’t I sleep? Why do I feel angry and isolated? Why do I suddenly dislike my friends? Psychotherapist and grief specialist Meghan Riordan Jarvis shares a research-based resource filled with clinical insights and practical steps toward navigating loss with Can Anyone Tell Me?

“Though each experience is unique, we all grieve in our bodies,” Meghan says. “By recognizing grief as a kind of trauma, we better understand why our mind and body respond in sometimes perplexing ways to loss.” In this accessible guide, she answers the most frequently asked questions about the grieving process, offering hopeful lessons informed by neuroscience and biophysical science. Communicated in manageable bites and with profound real-world stories, it is structured as a series of questions broken into sections on the brain, body, emotions, sense of self, relationships, timeline expectations, and how to get the right support.

Grief and loss are an inevitable part of life. What you’re going through is normal, and becoming grief informed will help you begin to feel less confused and alone. Whether you are currently grieving or are looking to support a loved one, here is help to uncover the answers to why and discover what you can do to help.
