He has written numerous articles on the subject of emotional healing, grief, loss and the connection vs. disconnection of spirituality in loss, addiction and relapse prevention. Ted has co-authored the book “Witnessing Ted, The Journey to Potential Though Grief & Loss”, a sensitive guide on the six aspects of grief and the journey to a wiser more authentic life.
