Grief work

Hi. Nice to meet you all. I'm an adult child in need of grieving now. Can anyone share how grief work is done? What do you do? Just cry? Let it all come up?

Welcome! I did grief work quite a few years ago, based on the works by John Bradshaw. 'Healing the Shame' by John Bradshaw is the book that helped me so much, but here are more titles you could check out:

Anderson, Robert J.
Perfect Daughters
Bey, Deborah Loving an Adult Child of an Alcoholic
Black, Claudia It Will Never Happen To Me
Bowden, Julie The Self-Sabotage Syndrome - Adult Children in the Workplace
Recovery: A Guide for Adult Children of Alcoholics
Bradshaw, John Healing the Shame
Friel, John Adult Children - The Secrets of Dysfunctional Families
Middleton-Moz, Jane After The Tears: Helping Adult Children of Alcoholics Heal Their
Childhood Trauma

Whitfield, Charles Healing the Child Within
Woititz, Dr. Janet Struggle for Intimacy

Thank you. As for grieving itself - specifically - would you be willing to share how you did it?
