"Rosenblatt combines the wisdom accumulated from his distinguished career in marriage and family studies and the practical experience of couples whose children have died. He teaches without being pedantic, guides without being directive. This book will help bereaved couples understand stresses their child's death puts on each of them and on their marriage. And the book provides tools and insights couples can use as they rebuild their lives and families in a world that changed forever the day their child died."
-Dennis Klass, Ph.D., Webster University, St. Louis, and author of The Spiritual Lives of Bereaved Parents
"Help Your Marriage Survive the Death of a Child is an important contribution to the literature. Aimed as it is at grieving parents themselves, rather than a professional audience, the book contains a minimum of theory, and much practical information. Rosenblatt addresses the uniqueness of each grieving person, and the unique relationship of each couple. He speaks about the usual problems that grieving parents face3financial, emotional, gender differences, religious and sexual-stressing the importance of loving patience when couples grieve in different manners and at different times. The book offers suggestions, while a the same time honoring the 'do-it-yourselfness' of the grieving process. While the book has a target audience of grieving persons themselves, it is also valuable for professionals who are looking for concrete suggestions to give to clients, as well as an important addition to the libraries of counseling centers and support groups."
-John D. Morgan, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Philosophy, and Coordinator, King's College Centre for Education about Death and Bereavement
"This book offers a very readable account of the parents' experiences of loss.... [it] will prove helpful as an easily-accessible reading resource for bereaved couples that can be used to help raise questions and issues in counseling, and to help direct counseling therapies."
