Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Beth Andersen
Husband and wife authors, Grover and Fowler, use their considerable librarianship credentials to compile this invaluable resource of grief literature that is designed to help professionals (in the education, library, and mental health fields), as well as parents, work with people of all ages to face the myriad issues surrounding deep loss. The authors detail the developmental stages of grief for young adults and cover a wide range of losses. In addition to death (of parents, relatives, friends, teachers, pets), children may suffer emotional fallout from divorce, from learning that they are adopted, or from being put into the foster care system. Grover and Fowler also spend some time discussing the challenges of parents who are experiencing their own enormous loss (spouse, child, parent) and yet must continue to care for their children. The uniform organization of each chapter provides easy access to the relevant information for each topic. A chapter overview is followed by lengthy essays on the targeted issues, citing research findings, and current theories. They are divided by topic and include ordering information and lengthy annotations. The bibliographies for the children's and young adults' chapters also specify age range. The hefty price tag, while a concern for strapped and shrinking budgets, is worth the investment. Working with stricken children is especially wrenching and this wonderful resource offers not only the comfort of a guided plan, but also provides reassuring explanations for all the emotional triggers, supported by appropriate readings.
