FatherLoss : Sigmund Freud called the death of his father "the most poignant loss" of his life. Actor Sean Connery termed it "a shattering blow." The experience of losing a father - no matter when or how it occurs - tests the strength and resilience of a son. Based on a landmark national survey of more than 300 men, and interviews with 70 others, FatherLoss is a rich and nuanced look at one of the most common and least-studied events in men's lives. Offering a fresh view of the grieving process and practical advice, this fascinating book contains information on: how a son can prepare for his loss; coping immediately following the death; a woman's role in helping men through it; and the different ways men grieve. FatherLoss is being used by bereavement associations, psychologists, hospices, counseling centers, and religious groups with thousands of men who are coping with the loss of their fathers or preparing for such a loss.
