Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I would recommend this book highly to anyone who teaches a first course in grief and bereavement and/death and dying. It is comprehensive, insightful and scholarly yet retains the sensibility that is needed when discussing the topics. This manuscript covers areas in grief and loss that are not normally addressed."

"I would advise a colleague that this manuscript presents a most comprehensive review of the literature and includes the most thorough documentation to date of the current approaches to the practice of grief counseling."
