This book focuses on how to identify the various stages of bereavement and suggests ways of coping with a range of experiences involving loss. What coping strategies can we use to deal with the emotional and practical challenges of losing someone close to us? In what ways can we support others who are bereaved? "
Grief Counseling and Grief Therapy In this updated and revised third edition of his classic text, Dr. Worden presents his most recent thinking on bereavement drawn from extensive research, clinical work, and the best of the new literature. Readers will find new information on special types of losses--including children's violent deaths, grief and the elderly, and anticipatory grief--as well as refinements to his basic model for mourning. It now not only includes the four "tasks of mourning" but also seven "mediators of mourning."
