Riassunto: The title for this book, Silent Presence- A Companion Through The Journey of Grief, conveys the idea that there is an on-going presence we experience of someone who has died. This silent presence emerges as the reality of the loss deepens. The book has been written to support this basic premise and offers meditations, artwork and education to assist in the process of grieving. Dealing with the death of a spouse, good friend, parent, or a child takes time. Yet, time alone does not heal the wounds imposed by this loss. Most people need to understand the meaning of the loss so that it can find a place within their daily life and be a part of their transition into the future. Silent Presence is a companion through grief to be used in one s own style, in one s own time. In grief, spirituality nourishes the psychological, social and physical being. Spiritual health is in return strengthened by care of body and mind. The goal of this book is to help each person return to a fully functioning, peaceful existence.
About the Author: Author, Mary O'Shaughnessy has dedicated much of her life over the past twenty years, to caring for individuals and families who have suffered through the loss of a loved one. After graduating from Molloy College as a professional nurse in 1974, she began to care for individuals who were dying. At this time, she became aware of the need to support families who were grieving after their loved ones died. To her knowledge there were no formal support systems available for individuals who were experiencing grief. So, on her time, she began to make home visits to family members of patients who had died. After completing a Master s Degree in Psychiatric Nursing at New York University in 1977, Mary initiated a formal program to meet the needs of grieving adults and children at a community hospital on Long Island. Since there were very few bereavement support groups in this country during the 1970 s, the availability of such a service quickly became well known. Individuals from all over the country used these counseling services. Her program eventually laid the foundation for the implementation of Hospice Care on Long Island. Mary is now a Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatry and holds a Professional Doctorate in Psychology. She is a full time Associate Professor of Psychiatric Nursing at Molloy College in Rockville Centre, L.I. Mary works with other individuals and organizations that would like to begin their own bereavement support groups. Throughout the past twenty years, Mary has listened to the feelings and needs of at least 1,000 individuals who have suffered the loss of a loved one. The book, Silent Presence, reflects the feelings and themes of those who have shared their journey with her. It is a companion to those entering into the process of grieving, rather than a theoretical dissertation or intellectual exercise on grief. It is her hope that this book will be available to any person who wishes to have support throughout the difficult experience of mourning.
