Teen Grief: Caring for the Grieving Teenage Heart (eBook)

Teen Grief

Winner. Book Excellence Award, 2018

Teens are hurting. 

While trying to make sense of an increasingly confusing and troubled world, teens get hit, again and again, with moves, separations, divorces, rejections, substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, illness, disability, and death.

Edgy, fun-loving, tech-driven, and seemingly indestructible, their souls are shaking. Gnawing questions surface from deep inside: "How did this happen? Why me? Is this my fault? What am I supposed to do? Who's next? Am I going to make it?" 

Teen hearts are at stake. Each one is a priceless treasure. We can't afford to allow pain and loss to get the better of them. 

What can we do?

Award-winning author and grief counselor Gary Roe wrote Teen Grief at the request of parents, teachers, coaches, and school counselors. Born of personal experience and more than three decades of interacting with grieving teens, this informative, practical handbook is replete with guidance, insight, and ideas for helping teens navigate the turbulent waters of loss. Though Teen Griefprimarily focuses on losses due to death, the principles discussed can be applied to any loss a teen might be experiencing.

Teens are the future. If we can help them discover how to turn losses into gains and transform hardship into something productive, positive, and good, the ripple effects could be extraordinary. As they heal and grow, they can become the difference-makers this world so desperately needs. 

Teens are hurting. They need us. They need you. It's time to help them heal. 

What others are saying:

Teen Grief does an excellent, thorough job of getting us in touch with the grieving teenage heart and what we can do to help. Sensitive, compassionate, and practical, this book will be invaluable to many parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, counselors, and anyone working with youth. – Paul Casale, Licensed Mental Health Counselor/Marriage & Family Therapist

Gary Roe has done it again. Clear, readable, and well-organized, Teen Grief tackles the tough topics head-on. Full of practical suggestions and exercises, this is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, coaches, ministers, and anyone who has a teenager they love and want to help along the grief journey. -Glen Lord, President/CEO, The Grief Toolbox; President, Board of Directors, The Compassionate Friends

Gary has gone straight to the heart and soul, with a style that speaks intimately to those who hurt. As someone who has worked with hurting teens for over 20 years, I can say with confidence that Gary has answered a need that society has been screaming and begging for. -Scott Willmore, Senior Pastor, Connecting Point Church

Gary tackles a very difficult topic, presenting the complexity of the grieving process in a highly practical and authentic way through the eyes of teenagers. The book's practical advice is crisp, focused and invaluable. Another meaningful volume of hope and healing by a skilled and compassionate author. -Dr. Craig Borchardt, President / CEO, Hospice Brazos Valley

Gary Roe is a proven voice in understanding how to navigate the difficult waters of grief. If you have a teen, work with teens, or just love teens, then this is a book you need to read. An excellent resource for parents, teachers, counselors, and ministers. – Dr. Troy Allen, Pastor, First Baptist Church, College Station

Teen Grief is a must read/own if you are a helper of adolescents. Gary has a heart for kids with loss as he very honestly speaks of being "that kid" himself. I found personal value in reassessing the cumulative effects of early losses in my own life. -Carrie Andree, Licensed Professional Counselor

Only someone who's been through it himself could write something like this. Gary's work is an immediately applicable, brass tacks kind of roadmap back to health through grieving. This book is hope for your teen's heart. – Scott Marlow, Journey Church, Lebanon, Tennessee

Heartfelt, wonderfully honest, compassionately written, and filled with stories of loss and hope, Teen Grief will become a go-to resource for you personally, your ministry, or your practice.

I'm in awe of how well Gary portrays the emotions experienced and the wisdom needed to handle a grieving teen. This book explains, in a beautiful way, that it’s not trying to alleviate teens’ pain that helps, but rather entering their world and experiencing their grief with them that makes the difference. Teen Grief is a gift to parents, teachers, coaches, pastors, and the teens they love and work with. – Michelle Jeter, bereaved mother and author of A Legacy of a Lifetime
