Author, The Helper’s Journey: Working with People Facing Grief, Loss, and Life-Threatening Illness
In her first book, Dawning of a New Day: A Journey out of Darkness: Life Lessons to Help you Through Grief, Dr. DeLeon magically walks us through her “journey” of grief with a book that tells her story. Now with this superb collection of strategies, activities and exercises, this new book, New Day: Grief Recovery Workbook can help us self-reflect, increase awareness and somehow go on through the darkness of grief and loss. This collection is invaluable for grievers and helping professionals alike.
