Release of 'Understanding Your Suicide Grief' by Dr. Alan Wolfelt
Date:11/17/2009

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A new book for survivors of suicide by leading grief counselor and educator Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D. has been released in time for National Survivors of Suicide Day on Saturday, Nov. 21. Understanding Your Suicide Grief: Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart addresses the profound grief experienced when someone we love takes their life, and describes ten benchmarks to help heal those left behind. A companion piece, the Understanding Your Suicide Grief Journal, encourages readers to write down their thoughts as they experience the book. The book and journal are $14.95 each, available from local and online booksellers and the publisher www.centerforloss.com.

"So many of us are touched by the loss of a relative or friend by suicide that this book will provide a much needed resource for help and support," said Dr. Wolfelt. "The old stigmas attached to death by suicide and transmitted to its survivors have faded, and a new model of help, compassion, understanding and companionship is outwardly embraced today," he commented.

Dr. Wolfelt describes ten "touchstones", ten essential physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual actions for suicide survivors in order to heal. He likens suicide grief to the experience of being lost in a forest. "In the wilderness of grief, the touchstones are your trail markers," he says. "They are the signs that let you know you are on the right path." Included in the book is "The Suicide Survivor's Bill of Rights".

According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), over 33,000 people in the United States die by suicide every year, and it is currently the 11th leading cause of death in the US. Within our lifetime, 20% of us will lose a family member to suicide and 60% will know someone
