Crafting of Grief: Constructing Aesthetic Responses to Loss


Product Description

Published UK, 2017
Many books on grief lay out a model to be followed and usually follow some familiar prescriptions for what people should do to reach an 'accommodation with loss'. This book is different. It focuses on conversations that help people chart their own path through grief. The authors argue that counsellors can support people more by helping them craft their own responses to bereavement rather than trying to squeeze experiences into a model. This is based on the concept of continuing bonds, with ideas to help people craft stories that remember loved ones' lives.

Lorraine Hedtke and John Winslade are Professors of Counselling at California State University.
