Overview


THE GRIEF ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION WORKBOOK: A STRENGTHS PERSPECTIVE is an exceptional new workbook that provides focused, practical guidance to help students function effectively in their roles as helpers when dealing with the dying or death of clients or clients' loved ones. Designed for use in social work and counseling courses on grief and loss, grief counseling, and bereavement therapy courses, the text can also serve as a valuable supplemental resource for practice or field courses across multiple disciplines. Using a strengths-perspective approach, the authors explore various theories of grief and delineate several intervention approaches, including developmental and cultural factors that impact the severity of grief reactions. The text also provides several grief assessment instruments used by practitioners, in-depth case scenarios to illustrate key concepts, and hands-on exercises for applying grief assessment and intervention techniques.
