“Why me? Is this my fault?
Am I going to make it?”
Teens are hurting.
While trying to make sense of an increasingly confusing and troubled world, teens get hit, again and again, with moves, separations, divorces, rejections, substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, illness, disability, and death.
Teen Grief was written to help teens navigate loss.
Teens are confusing creatures, and we all struggle with knowing how to help them through difficult times. Death of a loved one is the most difficult time of all. This book is a gift to those of us who love teens. It helps us find the words to help them.Kelli Levey Reynolds
Gary has gone straight to the heart and soul, with a style that speaks intimately to those who hurt. As someone who has worked with hurting teens for over 20 years, I can say with confidence that Gary has answered a need that society has been screaming and begging for. A must read for anyone who has kids or was hurt as a teenager.Scott Willmore
Teens Are Hurting – What Can We Do?
Gary Roe, award-winning author and grief counselor, wrote Teen Grief at the request of parents, teachers, coaches, and school counselors. Born of personal experience and more than three decades of interacting with grieving teens, this informative, practical handbook is replete with guidance, insight, and ideas for helping teens navigate the turbulent waters of loss. Though Teen Grief primarily focuses on losses due to death, the principles discussed can be applied to any loss a teen might be experiencing.
Teens are the future. If we can help them discover how to turn losses into gains and transform hardship into something productive, positive, and good, the ripple effects could be extraordinary. As they heal and grow, they can become the difference-makers this world so desperately needs.
Teens are hurting. They need us. They need you. It’s time to help them heal.

Sensitive, compassionate, and practical, this book will be invaluable to many parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, counselors, and anyone working with youth.Paul Casale
Grief at any age is difficult; teenage grief is a special challenge. Gary tackles a very difficult topic, presenting the complexity of the grieving process in a highly practical and authentic way through the eyes of teenagers. This is not just a book about bereavement theory; its practical advice is crisp, focused and invaluable. Another meaningful volume of hope and healing by a skilled and compassionate author.Dr. Craig Borchardt
Gary Roe has done it again. We all know how difficult it is to be a teen. Complicated by all the realities of teenage life, when grief strikes a teen’s heart, recovery can be a real challenge. Teen Grief is clear, readable, well organized, and tackles the tough topics head-on. Full of both practical suggestions and exercises, this is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, coaches, ministers, and anyone who has a teenager they love and want to help along the grief journey.Glen Lord
Teen Grief is a must read/own if you are a helper of adolescents. Gary has a heart for kids with loss as he very honestly speaks of being “that kid” himself. I found personal value in reassessing the cumulative effects of early losses in my own life. Thanks Gary!”Carrie Andree
