Marty's Articles

Below are links to all the articles I've posted on this blog over the years, about caregiving, grief, loss. and transition. Note that at the base of each post, you'll find links to related resources (articles, books, websites, organizations). As a grief counselor who spends time every day searching for reliable and current information on the Internet, it has been my experience that, no matter the topic, it is likely that someone, somewhere has written and published something of value on that particular topic ~ or will do so after my own article is published on my blog. So no matter when I post an article, I am continually on the lookout, watching for resources that are related to the topic under discussion ~ and I am happy to share links to them with my readers. When you click on any of these links, you'll find useful material written not only by me, but also a rich assortment of resources offered by other authors as well. My posts are being updated regularly with links to additional resources ~ all in an effort to provide my readers with a vast assortment of current, valid and reliable information about caregiving, loss, grief and transition. Note that every article includes the date on which it was most recently reviewed and updated.
