Books on grief often fall into two cat­e­gories: mem­oir or sci­ence. In The Only Way Out is Through, Dr. Gail Gross com­bines the two in an inspir­ing sto­ry of loss along­side the ana­lyt­i­cal psy­chol­o­gy that helped her find her own re-entry into life. The Only Way Out is Through tells the sto­ry of a mother’s sud­den loss of a child and the impact on the fam­i­ly as a whole. It offers a com­pre­hen­sive approach to heal­ing for the bereaved and helps them re-enter life on new terms. The Only Way Out is Through is not only a book about griev­ing, but a guide to suc­cess­ful­ly nav­i­gat­ing tran­si­tions — the end­ings and begin­nings of life. Dr. Gail helps read­ers learn to lis­ten to their own inner voic­es, the deep­est part of the uncon­scious, so that reori­ent­ing and reshap­ing the future seems pos­si­ble. Offer­ing strate­gies for deal­ing not just with pro­found grief, but with liv­ing beyond a dev­as­tat­ing loss, she pro­vides a map for those look­ing for guid­ance, com­fort, care, and hope.
