Avoid the Costly Mistake
of Mounting Loss Upon Loss.

The content in this reference library is the life saver that’s already
helped more than 80,000 people who were drowning in grief.

When Peter McGugan was 30 years old, 28 of his young friends died.

Because he was a broadcaster, international speaker and best-selling author, he was giving eulogies for the souls he most needed to turn to for comfort.

Nothing spoke to him or lifted him up. So he wrote the classic self-help book, “When Something Changes Everything” and went around the world, speaking, and showing his award-winning films about managing change, loss and reinvention. 

He’s bounced back from many chapter changes since then, including burglars burning down his cherished home. Relationships have ended and beloved pets have died. 

“To keep on keeping on, I had to teach myself how to cherish the past and empower my intention to be happier, healthier, more content and to feel more loved than ever before. And I am! There was no book, group or course that had what I needed, and that’s why I invested 20 years researching, writing, teaching and making the films and audio programs for Grief To Gratitude." 

Peter traveled the world discovering the secrets of resiliency, contentment and the lost art of true Catharsis.

As Seen On

Risks and Costs of Mismanaged Grief

After something changes everything,
your chances of creating more losses are multiplied.
What are your risks on this list?

  • Auto Accidents
    In the year following the death of a loved one, grieving individuals have a 93% higher than average risk for auto accidents, and a death rate 200% higher than average.

  • Addiction
    Almost all alcohol relapses are the direct result of the death of a loved one, a divorce or other romantic break-up. Alcohol abuse costs American businesses more than $276 billion a year.

  • Cardiovascular Risk
    Several studies show heartbreak can literally lead to cardiovascular and immune system weakness. The annual cost of losing a loved one in the U.S. far exceeds $100 billion per year.

  • Rebound Relationships
    Nature abhors voids, but filling them with mistakes is toxic, costly and it mounts disappointments.

  • Weight Gains & Eating Disorders
    You’re teary, emotional and stalled at the intersection of “Comfort Foods” and “Eating Disorder”. Without coping skills that really remove toxic emotions and energies, you’d better keep stretchy pants on hand.

  • Recurring Illness & Increased Healthcare Costs
    90% of physical laborers reported increased injuries after a loss. 91% indicate an injury could have been avoided if they were better able to concentrate.

  • Decreased Workplace Productivity
    The Grief Recovery Institute estimated the annual cost of workplace grief at $75 billion. Included in this figure is death of a loved one ($37.5 billion) and pet loss ($2.4 billion).

  • Unemployment
    85% of management level decision makers indicate that their decision making ranked from Very Poor to Fair in the months following a loss. 60% confessed their decisions definitely had direct negative financial impact on their company. The death of a parent creates longer-term unemployment.

And then there are these risks...

  • Childhood Bereavement Challenges
    Studies in the UK have shown a 30% increase in childhood visits to a doctor while mourning. Children are more likely to have behavioral problems, abuse alcohol and drugs, experience anxiety, act out, have social challenges, struggle in school, and/or experience recurring illness.

  • Teen Pregnancy
    Especially with sudden and traumatic death, bereaved teens are more likely to get pregnant.

  • Developmental Challenges In Children & Teens
    When a parent has died, especially from a sudden death, adolescents have lower competence in work, peer relations, career planning, and educational aspirations. Maladaptive grief in kids definitely impacts social and academic development.

  • Marital Strife
    Married couples each grieve differently, and this challenges relationships causing counseling expenses and sometimes divorce. Grieving parents are more likely to leave employment, get divorced, and lose their own mental health. Decades after the loss of a child, parents in Sweden’s national study still earned 30 percent less.

  • Financial Decline
    Global studies point to loss of financial stability after a death, especially from the loss of a spouse or child. The Grief Recovery Institute calculated employee grief costs US employers $100 billion+ a year.
