Fort Collins, CO…Companion Press announces the publication of Healing Your Grieving Heart After a Military Death: 100 Practical Ideas for Families and Friends co-authored by retired military officer and bereaved military spouse Bonnie Carroll and renowned grief counselor and educator Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D.

This new book is one of the few to focus on the unique grief that follows a military death, whether as a result of hostile action, accident, illness, or suicide. Families and friends may be traumatized by the sudden and often violent loss. Military processes and culture also have an effect on their grief.

The book was created in conjunction with the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, or TAPS—a U.S. nonprofit organization dedicated to helping grieving families in the aftermath of a military death.
