All Things is an adapted grief journal from Steve Barlow, an experienced UK therapist, who wanted to present a 'grief as it happens' experience to readers. Following the sudden death of his younger brother, the author here presents one year of his grief journey, which covers many classic themes, explores the often side-lined bereavement experience of sibling loss and inevitably brings him face to face with issues relating to his own mortality in a very real rather than abstract sense.

One of few books focused specifically on adult sibling loss, The Oxidation of Grief is a compilation of personal essays written as the author mourned the death of her younger sister. The second half of the book includes the stories of 13 others whose siblings died before their time. Many books are available on the loss of parents and children. Many are also available to help young children mourn the loss of a sibling. Described by some as “the forgotten mourners,” the contributors to this book express grief for the loss of the special, life-long relationships between brothers and sisters.
Evelyn is a feature length documentary about a family's journey to overcome the grief they hold over the death of their brother and son 13 years earlier to suicide.
The film is available as a free resource to be used for community and educational screenings.

Hi. I'm looking for people to interview for a research project that will attempt to find out why we announce the deaths of our loved ones on social media, and what this means for our relationship with death and grief.
When I was 24, my mum passed away after a battle with cancer. Amongst the grief and shock I felt, I remember thinking how I should inform people. After deciding to use social media, I spent a long time trying to composing a message that was informative and respectful, but also expressed my feelings at the time. It proved a lot more difficult than expected.
It made me realise that the way we inform others of a loved one’s passing is a sizeable part of the duties involved following a death. By offering to discuss this sensitive topic with a researcher, your experience and perspective will help to provide a fuller picture of the grieving process.

People's experience of their mortality shows that there are multiple ways how we are living with and towards death.
We are hoping to explore this in our research in Counselling Psychology. At this stage we are looking for people to complete our anonymous online survey. We would be grateful for your help.

We know that we will all have to face it one day, but we put that “difficult” conversation off until tomorrow. Or the day after… Well it doesn’t have to be that way.
The people we talk to on this podcast are people who do talk about it. They’re people who have learnt through personal experience how important it is to talk about our wishes before it’s too late, and they have a lot to say.
Whether you’ve been bereaved, have a family member who’s approaching the end of life, want to support a friend, or just want to know how to start the conversation for yourself, this podcast is for you.
