The All About Grief website was created by author and grief educator Doris Zagdanski. Doris is the author of seven books on the topic of grief and has worked in the funeral industry for 25 years. After growing demand for her books and other quality grief resources, Doris and her daughter Kristen developed the All About Grief website.
The website’s boutique bookstore offers a range of modern Australian books on coping with grief, helping grieving people, coping with the death of a pet, helping children understand death, aging and dementia, coping with cancer and personal development.
In addition to the bookstore, the site has free fact sheets for download, grief seminar information, and links to useful websites for community groups and grief-related products and services. In time, we hope to expand our range of books and grow our list of resources so that All About Grief is a one-stop-shop for those who need quality, insightful information at what is often a very difficult time in their lives.
