Stories of Complicated Grief: A Critical Anthology

The authors in this anthology are social workers and other human service scholars who have personally experienced complicated, protracted, or otherwise difficult grief. They write openly about their experiences and place their stories in a larger academic context.

As social workers, we talk about self-care, but we're probably the worst at it.

As the grief and the loss are amplifying, we need to find ways to be superheros to ourselves and amplify our own self-care.
