About the Author

Shawn Blue, PsyD, is licensed clinical psychologist and assistant professor in the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University.


Necessary and insightful given today's social media landscape and how it has modified the way in which we connect romantically. I highly recommend for anyone who wants to better understand the how and why behind their own behavior in a relationship. -- Nicole Lipkin, CEO of Equilibria Leadership Consulting and author of "What Keeps Leaders Up at Night"
With an encyclopedic coverage of literature on romantic love, Shawn Blue offers a deep and thorough study of the grief consequent upon the break-up of such relationships. She elucidates the complexity, poignancy, and gravity of ruptured attachments and shines light on healthier ways of coping with them. Her observations also forge links between erotic disappointment and other forms of loss, enhance empathy with all those in mourning, and enrich therapeutic skills for dealing with overwhelming heartbreaks and maladaptive defenses against the anguish they cause. -- Salman Akhtar, MD, Jefferson Medical College
This book will help clinicians develop a better understanding of the biopsychosocial importance of relationships and attachments. It is an excellent guide for helping patients work through the grief that they experience after any significant loss in their lives. -- James Hagenbaugh, Thomas Jefferson University
Grief and Romantic Relationship Dissolution is a thorough and astute review of the literature as it pertains to break-ups and divorce. Dr. Blue covers the topic with broad strokes and from many angles, covering attachment theory, grief models, neurobiology, to social media, cultural differences, and LGBTQ perspectives. This book is sure to appeal to a large audience given the universal experience of romantic relationships that end, but is a 'must-read' for therapists and other mental health clinicians working with clients. -- Deanna Nobleza, Thomas Jefferson University
