This workbook has been a God send to me. The effort used in working through my feelings by writing them down in each of the sections has been more helpful for me than 3 years of counseling. I am finally working my way toward peace now. Maybe it was just time for me to do this.
I highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from the sudden violent death of a spouse that was the world to you.
Since the area of grief is so complex, I have been concentrating on books in three areas, general grieving, grieving a suicide, and complicated grief, which includes traumatic grief. I haven't found many really good books on grieving a suicide or complicated grief, but this is outstanding, and the best I have encountered in the latter area.
Many reviewers of this book are clinicians, but I think lay people will find this book equally helpful. The key word in the title is "Transforming". A number of books discuss the problems of complicated grief but this book is focused on the therapy. I am always a little wary of books that offer a system, especially when it has an acronym, but Armstrong's EMERGE system is simple, easy to follow, and thorough. She supports it with examples from cases she's been involved with, and research, the latter offered in a practical and accessible way.
Her system could be used by clinicians with their clients, but lay people could also follow it themselves.
The other point on which I will commend her is the real empathy one finds in her tone. It is implicitly encouraging. I've had to do a lot of grieving but fortunately, none of it was traumatic. If I were to experience the traumatic death of a loved one, I'd want to move to Tennessee just so that I could work with Courtney. Fortunately, the grief counselors at my hospice, Chacy and Rachelle, are outstanding and would be eager to help me work with Armstrong's book.
