Help Your Marriage Survive: The Death Of A Child

Help Your Marriage Survive: The Death Of A Child

by Paul C. Rosenblatt

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Rosenblatt, founder of the Grief and Families Focus Group of the National Council on Family Relations, has written a sympathetic book focusing on the effects of the loss of a child on a couple's relationship. Rosenblatt's research is based on interviews with 29 couples from different socioeconomic circumstances who lost children of varying ages. Although this book definitely fills a gap in death and dying literature, it is, unfortunately, poorly written, and its repetitious style detracts from its worth. Rosenblatt's advice differs little from couples counseling in general. Perhaps the most helpful chapter deals with strained sexual relationships following the death of a child. In some cases, Rosenblatt tries to copy the vernacular of the interviewees, but rather than enhancing the dialog, it actually disrupts the flow, often making the interviewees sound unintelligent. The book would have benefited from a list of references and/or suggested readings. Because the work is written specifically for couples, it is best suited for public libraries.--Annette Haines, Central Michigan Univ. Libs., Mt.
