All Alone: Coping With Loss and Loneliness

Available from


book coverYou never thought you'd find yourself in such a lonely state. Maybe your best friend moved across the country or a loved one tragically passed away. Perhaps you're dealing with health problems after a life-changing diagnosis. In life, many situations can lead to an overwhelming sense of bereavement and loneliness, from the death of a beloved pet to the end of a long-term relationship.

In thirty years of clinical practice as a psychologist, Frank J. Machovec, PhD, has counseled and provided therapy to countless individuals facing loneliness and grief. But his greatest lesson on the subject was a deeply personal and painful one-the sudden loss of his wife after sixty years of marriage.

How is it possible to recover from such deep despair? It isn't easy, but with some time and effort, it can help you emerge a better and brighter version of yourself. In All Alone, Dr. Machovec combines knowledge from the worlds of philosophy, religion, and modern psychology, providing comfort and guidance for those who have found themselves suffering an unbearable loss.
