In October 2010 the authors became exclusive providers of grief- and grief-recovery-related content on a memorial website called Tributes.com, a site that receives approximately three million unique hits per month, and to which readers submit very personal and unique grief-related questions. Collected in this book are not only a bounty of personal and often moving questions but also the authors’ equally compelling responses and tips for using the Grief Recovery Method to deal with broken hearts. The book not only deals with grief from loss of a loved one, but also the grieving that occurs following a divorce, a sudden downturn in health, the loss of a job, and even the loss of faith.
So much of life depends on how well we deal with the inevitable losses that occur. Moving Beyond Loss is filled with accurate and helpful guidance for dealing with death, divorce, and other losses.

Just the right questions, just the right answers. A treasure trove of good advice for anyone suffering the pain of loss.

No one, and I mean no one, knows as much about grief, loss, and how to recover from both than Russell Friedman and John W. James. The work they pioneered in The Grief Recovery Handbook saved my life in no uncertain terms, and surely they have saved countless other lives from either actual extinction or endless pain. If you are suffering, drowning, despairing in grief and loss, let this new book be your passage to peace. It will rescue you; I promise.

My family has been fortunate enough to have direct guidance from Russell and John in dealing with the losses that have affected our lives. Moving Beyond Loss will help people become aware that recovery from loss is even possible, and that there’s a practical Method that can help them. This book should be front and center in everyone’s home as a reference book—an Emotional Google.
-- Nick Searcy, actor, Justified
Grief is one of those uncharted territories that many dare not really explore deeply. Moving Beyond Loss combines practical guidance with clinical wisdom to provide a landscape which helps mourners better understand the journey through grief.
