The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience is what author Rebecca Soffer wished she had after her parents died, offering a welcoming space in which to grow thoughts and feelings as they evolve and create a personal roadmap toward resilience. With warmth, wit, and disarming humor, Soffer and Stacy London, CEO of State of Menopause and co-host of What Not to Wear will unpack the wisdom of the book and discuss how the long arc of loss can be woven into our lives in a way that is practical, creative, comforting, provoking, and, finally, hopeful.
