The calm before and after the storm. Rest in the Mourning is a steady and profound stream of conscious thoughts and emotion. Documenting unhealthy relationships and why the heart ends up in the hands of those deemed unworthy. It speaks to the heart's ability to hold on to relationships that no longer deserve our energy as well as what happens when we are ready to let go. Rest in the Mourning is about self-care and self-love.

The unexpected loss of a client can be a lonely and isolating experience for therapists. While family and friends can ritually mourn the deceased, the nature of the therapeutic relationship prohibits therapists from engaging in such activities. Practitioners can only share memories of a client in circumscribed ways, while respecting the patient's confidentiality. Therefore, they may find it difficult to discuss the things that made the therapeutic relationship meaningful. Similarly, when a therapist loses someone in their private lives, they are expected to isolate themselves from grief, since allowing one's personal life to enter the working relationship can interfere with a client's self-discovery and healing. For therapists caught between their grief and the empathy they provide for their clients, this collection explores the complexity of bereavement within the practice setting. It also examines the professional and personal ramifications of death and loss for the practicing clinician. Featuring original essays from longstanding practitioners, the collection demonstrates the universal experience of bereavement while outlining a theoretical framework for the position of the bereft therapist. Essays cover the unexpected death of clients and patient suicide, personal loss in a therapist's life, the grief of clients who lose a therapist, disastrous loss within a community, and the grief resulting from professional losses and disruptions. The first of its kind, this volume gives voice to long-suppressed thoughts and emotions, enabling psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, and other mental health specialists to achieve the connection and healing they bring to their own work.

Joy Comes in the Mourning is the story of one woman's journey toward forgiveness—hers, as well as others. It is a love story and a story of hatred. It has a dark element of bitterness and fear running throughout, but also a healthy dose of humor. Jane Houston, an RN who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, was raised by relatives after her parents died in an accident. She suffers from depression and bitterness brought about by abuse and sin. As she contrives to help herself, she comes face to face with her fears and her need of a Savior. A brief vacation visit to her former home in Mount Tarry, a small mountain town in North Carolina, turns into a long one, and she becomes involved with many different characters as her life winds and turns, much like Mount Tarry's narrow roads. She has plans for herself and her husband, Jake, but she'll find out that plans can be divinely interrupted.

Thirty-year-old Tonya Monroe has worked hard to amass her assets: a dream home in one of Washington's largest Maryland suburbs, a sweet job, a luxury car, and money in the bank. She has beauty, brains, and a body envied by women and adored by men. But what she hasn't had since she was fourteen and her mother was killed while riding with a drunk driver, leaving Tonya to be raised by the two people she begrudges most-her alcoholic father and her 'play aunt, ' Carolyn Wright-is peace of mind. Peace isn't the only thing slipping through her fingers when she is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Carolyn, who drove the car that took Tonya's mother's life, is a fifty-four-year-old devoted wife, ministry leader, and self-proclaimed 'woman of integrity.' Though she believes in holding folk-especially church folk-accountable for their actions, she refuses to live under the black cloud of that terrible day. She is now strong in the Lord and the power of His might. But her well-built spiritual wall begins to crumble when she winds up the subject of scandal at the Straighter Way Baptist Church and has to answer for her actions. This uplifting debut novel from a fresh, new voice in the growing field of Christian fiction is the story of faith, friendship, and forgiveness. Korika L. Johnson's "Joy Comes in the Mourning" presents real characters with real issues and challenges even non-Christians to lift up their eyes to the Father in heaven.

Have we moved beyond postmodernism? Did postmodernism lose its oppositional value when it became a cultural dominant? While focusing on questions such as these, the articles in this collection consider the possibility that the death of a certain version of postmodernism marks a renewed attempt to re-negotiate and perhaps re-embrace many of the cultural, literary and theoretical assumptions that postmodernism seemly denied outright. Including contributions from some of the leading scholars in the field – N. Katherine Hayles, John D. Caputo, Paul Maltby, Jane Flax, among others – this collection ultimately comes together to perform a certain work of mourning. Through their explorations of this current epistemological shift in narrative and theoretical production, these articles work to “get over” postmodernism while simultaneously celebrating a certain postmodern inheritance, an inheritance that can offer us important avenues to understanding and affecting contemporary culture and society.
