Renowned author and educator Alan Wolfelt redefines the role of the grief counselor in this guide for caregivers to grieving children. Providing a viable alternative to the limitations of the medical establishment’s model for companioning the bereaved, Wolfelt encourages counselors and other caregivers to aspire to a more compassionate philosophy in which the child is the expert of his or her grief—not the counselor or caregiver. The approach outlined in the book argues against treating grief as an illness to be diagnosed and treated but rather for acknowledging it as an event that forever changes a child's worldview. By promoting careful listening and observation, this guide shows caregivers, family members, teachers, and others how to support grieving children and help them grow into healthy adults.

Healing Together is written especially for the adult and child grieving together. Age does not make it easier or harder to cope with the anguish of losing a loved one. It is a time to grieve. This alphabet book on recovery from grief is presented from the perspective of the adult and that of the child. It is not written in a sequential format, but rather, the thoughts, reflections, and lessons stem from the collected experiences of mother, Karen Chouinard, and daughter, Holly Carpenter, over a span of many years, from the earliest stages of mourning to the present. As an added tool, Karen and Holly have listed additional words to encourage thoughtful and meaningful discussions between the adult and child, both of whom are embarking on their own personal journeys from grief to healing. Scripture has also been included as references for spiritual encouragement.
