Writing helps mother deal with loss of her murderd daughter - News Post Leader: "Writing helps mother deal with loss of her murdered daughter


Lynne Robson.

By PETRA SILFVERSKIOLD

"FIVE-and-a-half years ago – on the night of her parents' silver wedding anniversary – 14-year-old Sarah Robson's body was found in a field close to her East Cramlington home.
She had been plied with cheap wine before being raped, then beaten and strangled, leaving her parents and two brothers heartbroken.

Now her mum Lynne has published a book, If Only, which tells the story of Sarah's life and her family's journey from that devastating knock on the door in February 2003, through the court case and beyond."

This is great example of "journaling" which is a key tool in grief recovery. This piece of journaling is now public, but it's value extends beyond that. Journaling is a great tool for How to Cope with Grief and Loss.

It is a key process to your recovery which we also recommend in our book on the subject of Grief and Loss.
