Grief and anxiety are inextricably linked.

Anxious Grief is the missing link to grief treatment that professionals have been waiting for. Written by bestselling author and renowned grief therapist Claire Bidwell Smith, this book serves as a beacon to any clinician working with clients who are experiencing loss in any form, grappling with anxiety surrounding death, or looking for meaning behind the bigger picture of their lives.

With Claire’s own journey of loss, grief, and healing woven throughout, this workbook provides you with the tools to walk alongside the griever, bear witness to their experience, and help carry the burden of their loss.

Filled with worksheets, exercises, guiding questions, and meditations, this book will help you:

  • Respond to and normalize grief anxiety
  • Approach family, workplace, and lifestyle dynamics
  • Work with feelings of anxiety, anger, and guilt
  • Explore religion, spirituality, and rituals
  • Support clients to cultivate self-compassion and resilience
  • Utilize mindfulness and meditation
  • Navigate the delicate therapy termination process
  • And more!

No one will journey through life untouched by loss, but we can serve as steady companions for clients as they navigate this difficult terrain.
