There are distinct differences in the manners in which males and females grieve. Men in particular work hard to keep grief to themselves, maintain emotional control and refrain from asking for help. Divided into three parts, ",Picking up the Pieces",, ",Healing From Within", and ",Giving Back to Others",. The Widower's Toolbox offers men a guide by a young widower who has lived through, coped with and ultimately healed from the pain. This guide can help them identify and resolve the issues overwhelming them from repairing their own lives and moving forward. There are over forty activities told from both the professional and personal views of the authors to lead widowers from the minefield of grieving to a foundation for healing. Among the suggestions are: Basic Training in New Household Systems, creating new traditions, using the prayer connection, finding new friendships, making a scrapbook or love letter and facing the issue of unresolved emotions. Ultimately, this book channels one's grief into constructive tasks that enable the bereaved man to recreate a life that can be fulfilling once again.
