About the Author

Joanne Cacciatore is the bestselling, award-winning author of Bearing the Unbearable: Love, Loss, and the Heartbreaking Path of Grief. She's also a clinical psychologist and professor specializing in traumatic grief, as well as a Zen priest--and the founder of a "care-farm" in Arizona that serves as a respite center for the traumatically bereaved.

She is an acclaimed public speaker and provides expert consulting and witness services in the area of traumatic loss. Her research has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as The Lancet, Social Work and Healthcare, and Death Studies, among others.


"?Bearing the Unbearable was impossible to put down. It quickly becomes obvious that you are reading a book that is rich with imagery blended with emotion and tied into traumatic stories of loss. Woven within the chapters, Dr. Cacciatore also offers extra guidance that may be helpful for palliative and hospice providers as she talks about how she maintains resilience in the face of her magnetism that draws the public to share with her their most vibrant and terrible stories of loss. Bearing the Unbearable is beautiful, and a must read for caregivers, bereaved parents, and learners. It is the closest thing to having a deep unlimited conversation with parents carrying their child forever at their side."--Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
"Grieving Is Loving is a book of profound compassion and wisdom and strength--and it's the best kind of strength: the kind that comes not from fighting and suppressing pain but from going to our most vulnerable places in a spirit of deep love. Dr. Jo is teaching us how to grieve, and in doing so, she is teaching us how to love--how to love the people we have lost, and to love our own wounds, and what they can now inspire us to do to honor those who are gone."--from the foreword by Johann Hari
"Grieving Is Loving is a good spiritual friend, a warm hand to anyone seeking companions in bearing the unbearable. With tender compassion and insight, Joanne Cacciatore walks with us shoulder to shoulder in our grief, bringing us into a world of tender vitality."--Koshin Paley Ellison, author of Wholehearted: Slow Down, Help Out, Wake Up and an editor of Awake at the Bedside: Contemplative Teachings on Palliative and End of Life Care
"Grieving Is Loving is a wise, moving, and compassionate book. Reading it brought tears to my eyes as it reminded me of the loss of loved ones thirty and forty-five years ago. Not only should its message be read and internalized by those suffering the loss of a beloved, but also by those with friends who have lost or are likely to lose someone in the future--in other words, by everyone."--Irving Kirsch, PhD, Harvard Medical School, University of Connecticut, University of Hull, author of The Emperor's New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth
