In suffering the unexpected loss of her husband in the space of three months, Maria has navigated this passing into an honest awakening to the stages of grief. She explores the changes to one's character, its effects on those around them and the difficulties we face as carers when confronted with the responsibility to manage and comfort our loved one in this process. In Factions of A Mind, Dr Katsarou-Makin examines our role as the carer, learning how to manage the responsibilities as well as the suffering and pain that comes with it, thoughtfully and honestly discussing our duty to care. As carers, our obligation to 'care' for the other has inexplicably meant that we do not equip ourselves with the tools and resources to 'care' for ourselves after their passing. Our inability to comprehend their loss and the stages of grief we are experiencing leave us vulnerable and open to further pain. AUTHOR: Dr Maria Katsarou-Makin is the founder of the Leadership Psychology Institute and has more than 20 years of experience in organisational development and executive coaching. She combines business and consulting experience and has done extensive work and research in team dynamics. Maria is Greek and resides in Cheshire, UK. SELLING POINTS: . Once the clock strikes, the countdown to our loss begins! Time is against us. But how we choose to manage this time is a new control we can regain . An honest and personal account to the harsh realities of dealing with a terminally ill loved one, and the effects of morphine on them and everyone around them . Learning to assist another through this difficult time, with the steps and processes to coping with the changes yourself .

Honest and moving experiences from carers who all detail the difficulties they faced as they watched their loved ones pass away
