Although most of us lose a mother or father in later life, few of us are psychologically prepared for the experience. This book explores the uncharted territory each of us enters when a parent leaves us, and offers a blueprint for positive change in every aspect of our lives. It demonstrates through powerful stories (including the author's own revelatory experience) how parent loss is the most potent catalyst for change in middle age and can actually offer us our last, best chance to become our truest, deepest selves. Psychotherapist Safer challenges the conventional wisdom that fundamental change is only for the young, and that loss must simply be endured or overcome. Filled with moving and engaging stories of real men and women re-imagining themselves after a parent's death, this is a fresh, impassioned, and sophisticated look at self-transformation in later life.--From publisher description.… (mer)

This book looks at ways we can fine new self-expression and freedom following the death of a parent.

I wanted this book to help, and I'm sure it does for some, but for me it seemed that it was probably more therapeutic for Ms Safer to write than it was for me to read.

I think it would be more helpful to a reader who wasn't all that close to their parent... or had a very controlling parent, upon the parent's passing. ( )

A different view of how to look at the loss of a loved one. Most of us will lose someone close to us with whom we have ambivalent feelings. All close relationships foster ambivalent feelings. How does a person cope with these conflicting feelings while dealing with grief. Safer gives us all permission to feel the relief of the ending of parts of the relationship that were difficult while at the same time grieving the loss of the loving parts of the relationship. ( )

Gently guides orphans through the grief and mixed feelings which may occur upon the death of a parent. ( )

Dr. Safer uses a rich array of stories gleaned from patients dealing with the death of one or both parents to present an airtight case for how the death of a parent can hold a multitude of benefits for even the oldest of orphans. Though Dr. Safer becomes repetitive when she's really trying to pound home a point, all in all she is quite sincere and articulate in her desire to help the grieving. ( )
