Understanding Loss: A Guide for Caring for Those Facing Adversity


Product Description

Published UK, 2015
This is the long-awaited new book by University of Queensland lecturer, Judith Murray. She draws on international and cross-disciplinary research to highlight nine common themes of loss, helping us to understand how it is experienced. These themes are then used to develop a practice framework for structuring assessment and intervention systematically. Throughout the book, this generic approach is highlighted through discussing its use in different loss events, such as bereavement, trauma, chronic illness and with children or older people. Child protection, palliative care and refugee grief are also discussed.
