Bank Square Books presents its next Self-Improvement Series event featuring Gabrielle Doucet, the author of Let Go and Let Love, a resource for anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide, at Bank Square Books on Tuesday, March 21. This event is free and open to the public.
About the Book
The suicide of her only son, Drew, understandably devastated registered nurse and healing energy practitioner Gabrielle Doucet. Compounding her grief was her realization that very few resources were available to help survivors of suicide loss.
As a nurse and healer, Doucet has spent her career helping people—and even mired by grief, she was determined to use her own personal tragedy to support, aid, and inspire others on their journey toward healing after the suicide of a loved one. Let Go and Let Love combines stories about Doucet’s son, Drew, and her experiences coming to terms with his death and its aftermath—with a powerful seven-step program for survivors to use to facilitate their own healing.
Though the topic is born out of darkness, Doucet suffuses the book with hope, light, and even humor. She meets mourners where they are and offers assurance that there is a way to move forward through the pain to regain joy and peace once more.
An invaluable tool for anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide, this book should be required reading for all support groups and recovery centers.
