Navigating grief

Boston College alumna Susan Hannifin-MacNab was the mother of a young child when she was suddenly widowed at age 41. Over the next few years, she turned to counseling, meditation, diet, and a therapy dog, among other tools, to help her and her son through the grieving and healing process. Hannifin-MacNab chronicled the experiences in a book, A to Z Healing Toolbox: A Practical Guide for Navigating Grief and Trauma with Intention, a 300-page workbook she hopes will help others who are grieving. Each chapter  — from A for animal therapy to Z for “Getting your zzzzzs (sleep)” — begins with a description of the tool and how it helped her, followed by action steps readers can use, healing stories by others, a list of resources and a blank page for notes. A to Z was awarded a bronze medal in the Psychology and Mental Health division of the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards and was a finalist for a 2018 INDIE Book Award.
