Counselling for Grief and Bereavement


Product Description

Published UK, 1996. 2nd edition 2008
These two experienced bereavement counsellors take the reader step-by-step through the counselling skills needed to work with grieving clients. Focusing on practical assessment and intervention strategies, and with case histories, the authors delineate the process and include comprehensive chapters on family grief, group counselling, anticipatory grief, and community outreach services. The revised edition features a new chapter on working with children and adolescents: both from the perspective of young people who are grieving losses and those who are receiving palliative care as patients. While focusing on the practical, the book provides a firm theoretical base by explaining key concepts such as attachment, grief and resilience.
