Facing the loss of a loved one in a death-avoidant culture can be excruciating. Grievers may be expected to put on a brave face, to “move on” quickly, and to seek medication if they are still grief-stricken after an “acceptable” amount of time. Psycho­therapist Judy Heath draws on extensive experience as a grief specialist in private practice to help those struggling with the anguish of loss. Addressing the myths and misinformation about mourning that still abound today, Heath gently coaches readers to understand that coping with loss is a natural process that our society tends to avoid and hurry people through, often leading to unresolved, lasting grief.No Time for Tears offers practical advice for both short- and long-term recovery, including how to manage rarely discussed physical and emotional changes: feelings of “going crazy” and inability to focus; feeling out of sync with the world, exhausted and chilled, and crushingly lonely.
 
This updated second edition includes new information about medication and discusses various types of loss including that of a parent, child, spouse, friend, or pet. Helpful not only to grievers but also to those who care about, counsel, or employ them,No Time for Tears is an essential resource for grief management and recovery.

"No Time for Tears is a new kind of guide, rich with information and real-life stories, to help not only people struggling through grief due to the loss of a loved one but also those who counsel them. Psychotherapist Judy Heath draws on her experiences in private practice and in her own life, as well as years of research, to address the misconceptions, myths, and misinformation about grief that still abound today. She notes that while popular scholarship is still commonly rooted in Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's 1960s "five stages of grief" theory, more recent research shows that there are no exact stages of grief and that denial and avoidance are more common threads woven throughout. Heath shows readers that grief is a painful but natural process that our society tends to medicate and hurry people through, leaving them ill-prepared for the roller coaster of emotions, lack of focus, and other feelings they experience. No Time for Tears offers practical and useful ways to traverse the pitfalls that may lead to unresolved and lasting grief and to find comfort and peace. Those who counsel the bereaved will find new ways to inspire their practices and many tools to assist those in need. This second edition includes updated information about medication and grief, children and grief, coping after a loved one is murdered, and grief following the events of September 11. "--
