Deb has also published Getting There, a resource for women who have experienced a loss, and their families, friends and professionals, who want to understand what happens when we grieve and how tap into our strength and resilience to build a ‘new normal’.
This book originated from Deb’s personal experience after her husband was killed in a road accident in Poland. Deb’s aim is to change the way we think about grief so it is less fearful, more appreciated and easier to deal with in our society. She is also very interested in working with widows and their children across the world as they deal with injustice and further hardships after the death of their husband.
Deb’s qualifications include a Master of Social Administration and a Bachelor of Arts.
