Too Soon to Say Goodbye
Deitch combines her psychological expertise with a mix of her own experiences and the personal stories of others who suffered the loss of one or both parents during childhood, teen years, or as a young adult. The psychological and physical effects of this trauma are manifest not only in the ones who experienced early loss, but they also can be passed on to the next generation. This book is also intended for psychotherapists and other mental health professionals, clergy, teachers, and childcare providers. It can increase awareness of the effects of this emotional upheaval, and the personal and clinical accounts provide inspiration, hope, and healing.
