Introducing Doris Zagdanski, who works with one of the largest funeral providers in Australia. She is also the author of many books about grief.
Doris is currently giving a lot of thought to that most difficult of times – when the funeral is over.
“After the funeral we shut the door and everyone’s life is supposed to go back to normal. But it often doesn’t. That’s when grieving people often need the most support, when the busyness of the funeral is over and they’re left on their own.
“How can we make that better? It’s a challenge for all of us.”
Doris has started a webpage called My Grief Assist. https://www.mygriefassist.com.au/
She is also author of the book “Now that the Funeral is Over – the common sense guide for grieving people.” (First published in 1993, to be reprinted in 2018)
Doris’s other books are:
Something I’ve Never Felt Before
Stuck for Words: What to say to someone who is grieving
What’s Dead Mean? How to help children cope with death
When Pets Die: It’s alright to grieve
Teenagers and Grief.
