Companion Press announces the publications of a new book by renowned grief educator Dr. Alan Wolfelt. Entitled Expected Loss: Coping with Anticipatory, it will be available through Companion Press 10/1/2020.

We don’t only experience grief after a loss—we often experience it before. If someone we love is seriously ill, or if we’re concerned about upcoming hardships of any kind, we naturally begin to grieve right now. This process of anticipatory grief is normal, but it can also be confusing and painful.

This compassionate guide will help readers understand and befriend their grief as well as find effective ways to express it as they live daily life. Life is change, and change is hard. This book will help see readers through.

Expected Loss: Coping with Anticipatory is part of Companion Press’s Words of Hope and Healing series— empathetic books on grief and other loss-related topics, with just the right amount of education and support.

Author, educator, and grief counselor Dr. Alan Wolfelt serves as Director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition in Fort Collins, Colorado. The author of Grief One Day at a Time, First Aid for Broken Hearts, Understanding Your Grief, and many other books for grief caregivers and mourners. Expected Loss: Coping with Anticipatory Grief is available in softcover formats.
