Overview

Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this popular casebook and text demonstrates a range of therapeutic approaches and interventions for children who have experienced loss. In-depth case examples--several of which are new or include follow-up reports--form the core of the book. The case material is presented in a handy two-column format that provides the reader not only with the content of the sessions, but also with the practitioner's accompanying thoughts and rationale for intervention. Illustrated are ways to help preschoolers through adolescents cope with different forms of bereavement, including death in the family, school, or community. Updated throughout with the latest concepts and methods, this second edition features entirely new chapters on art therapy and storytelling techniques, bereavement groups, and therapist self-care. Other essential new chapters focus on working with children who have witnessed school shootings and those grieving in the aftermath of terrorist attacks. A practical resource for all clinicians who treat children, this book is also an invaluable teaching tool.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Professionals in medicine, education, and counselling update the 1993 edition to account for the increased occurrence of violent deaths and the impact it is having on children, and the growing awareness by schools and communities that children need help following incidents of murder, bombings, and terrorist attacks. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Booknews
Webb (social service, Fordham U.) draws on the clinical experiences of mental health professionals to present the theory and the practical aspects of therapeutic interventions with children who are suffering from a loss. The theoretical framework of a child's view of death is followed by sections on reactions to death in the family, and losses that affect whole communities, such as the death of a teacher or classmate. Webb lists sources for the materials she recommends. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

"This accessible handbook, so rich in wisdom and insights, is a 'must' reference. I can think of no greater support for all professionals--especially teachers--involved in counseling bereaved children."--Rabbi Earl A. Grollman, DHL, DD, author of Talking About Death: A Dialogue Between Children and Adults

"The death of a beloved person divides a child's world into an intense 'before' and 'after.' Adults often feel unprepared to respond during this time of sadness, confusion, and anxiety. Here, thankfully, is a book that offers informed and practical suggestions for enhancing comforting relationships and guiding the bereaved child's quest for understanding. Insightful advice is provided from people who really know what they are talking about. Especially welcome in the new second edition are more detailed guidelines for the helping process and increased attention to the self-care needs of bereavement counselors. This book is a valuable resource for graduate students in preprofessional programs, especially school counseling, family counseling, clinical psychology, nursing, pediatrics, and family medicine. In addition, school administrators and other education professionals will find information to help them integrate communication and instruction about death and loss more fully into their educational programs. "--Robert Kastenbaum, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Hugh Downs School of Human Communication, Arizona State University

"This is a book that all who are concerned with helping bereaved children should read. The cases provide an understanding of how children deal with death in their own words, as well as rare first-hand reflections from the therapists that will facilitate the reader's ability to replicate the interventions."--Phyllis Silverman, PhD
