Losing Your Only by Dr Debi Yohn — Virtual Blog Tour

In January 2011, Dr Debi Yohn is touring cyber space to bring her experiences and message about how to deal with grief to you. But it doesn’t focus on the grief – instead she focuses on the celebration of life and how she moved past the grief so her life could go on and actually thrive.

More and more people and families are dealing with the loss of loved ones of all ages – and there are so many that have no idea how to grieve and how to make the necessary changes in their lives. This is where Dr Debi can help.

During the tour, we are looking for:

  • Bloggers and radio show hosts who would like to interview Dr Debi
  • Bloggers who would like to share excerpts from Losing Your Only
  • Reviewers who would like to read Losing Your Only and write a review (it’s a quick information packed read (50 pages) – we only have PDF copies available)
  • We are open to interesting ideas – if you would like to do something unusual, let’s talk

A Comment From Dr Debi About Losing Your Only

My current book, Losing Your Only is written to the Parents or Loved Ones that have lost an only child.  This book is written from my own personal experience.  When my only child was killed in a car accident, my life took a different path.  I was living in Shanghai China.  He was going to college in USA.  In my grief, I discovered that my purpose is to motivate, and support parents and all clients live to their life potential. Losing a child is horrific, losing an only child brings it up a notch.  So what do we do with that kind of experience?  We have decisions to make.  We can live or we can die with the child.  I decided not only to live, but to thrive.

Dr Debi Yohn Biography

In January – we’ll share much more information about Dr D’s new book – Losing Your Only. For any parent who has lost a child and especially their own child — this is a must read book. Short and to the point, Dr Debi shares what worked for her and also what didn’t – to help other parents and anyone who has lost someone they love. Like she said to me – “Its not about their death, its about the celebration of their life.”

This is her biography and for complete tour information, visit the Losing Your Only tour page.

About Dr Debi Yohn

Dr. Debi is an accomplished international psychologist, author, mentor, mother and speaker with 32 years of the most remarkable experience anyone could imagine.

She began her career in psychology helping families in the poor rural south…where greetings were occasionally, “Please put the gun down…I’m a social worker not a revenuer.”

As she continued her education, she lived in Saudi Arabia for 7 years where she conducted team building workshops…and in spite of an arrest for an airspace violation, forced landing and resulting disagreement with a middle eastern general,  she managed to “discuss” her (and her 87 fellow passengers) way to freedom.

Back in the US, working for 2 Fortune 500 organizations, one in healthcare and one in insurance, quickly rose to the position of Director and skillfully avoided most “rightsizings” except the last one.

She was thrown into crisis intervention when a nearby explosion in a manufacturing plant killed 12 workers and injured another 50.  She was part of a team of early responders that helped the families of the deceased, injured and non-injured survivors deal with the emotional aftermath of such a devastating accident.

Off on her next assignment of choice in China, she developed a private practice serving the English-speaking expatriate community of 300,000 providing psychological counseling and help for expats and their families adjusting to life abroad.

Eating bloodworms (yes, a Chinese delicacy and as nasty as it sounds) at the home of a government official or helping to establish “Lifeline Shanghai” an English speaking 911 service to help expats in need are just 2 of her many interesting adventures.

She has always felt that life teaches us what we need to learn and finding ways to learn those lessons as quickly and fully as possible helps improve the overall quality of the life experience.

Fortunately, in our complicated, overscheduled, and often crazy world, Dr. Yohn teaches specific strategies to bring joy, serenity and relaxation to your life even when things don’t look so good.

She has written four books and lectured on a wide variety of subjects related to parenting, mental health, adjusting to change, dealing with loss of a loved one and strategies for a success filled life.

She currently lives between Huatulco, Mexico and Shanghai, China.  She travels the world working with her clients, writing and managing her diversified business and charitable interests.
