Overview

Many clinicians recognize that denying or ignoring grief issues in children leaves them feeling alone and that acknowledging loss is crucial part of a child’s healthy development. Really dealing with loss in productive ways, however, is sometimes easier said than done. For decades, Life and Loss has been the book clinicians have relied on for a full and nuanced presentation of the many issues with which grieving children grapple as well as an honest exploration of the interrelationship between unresolved grief, educational success, and responsible citizenry. The third edition of Life and Loss brings this exploration firmly into the twenty-first century and makes a convincing case that children’s grief is no longer restricted only to loss-identified children. This edition of new Life and Loss recognizes modern issues of loss related to multicultural and diverse families, pet death, immigration, deportation, adoption, divorce, imprisonment, deployment, privacy, safety and even technology. Children’s grief is now endemic; it is global. Life and Loss is not just the book clinicians need to understand grief in today's society—it is the book they need to work with it in constructive ways.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is masterfully written and comprehensive in its coverage of a broad range of loss issues for children and their families. Goldman clearly states a variety of problems, and those are followed by well-documented strategies and solutions. She provides a vast number of useful community contacts as well as wide-ranging print and electronic resources. This is a major contribution for people helping grieving children and their families—and for the families themselves."

—J. Shep Jeffreys, EdD, FT, author of Helping Grieving People:When Tears Are Not Enough

"From death and divorce to immigration and cyber-bullying, Goldman views the losses of childhood through a wide-angle lens and dispenses compassionate advice. Life and Loss speaks practically to parents, teachers, counselors and the rest of us, offering a trove of recommended books, insights and web sites that support those who support grieving children."

—Robert A. Neimeyer, PhD, coeditor of Grief and the Expressive Arts: Practices for Creating Meaning

"Linda Goldman has given us a guide, encouragement and a mandate. Each edition of Life and Loss adds new situations and resources. Goldman is at the top of my chart and should be for you. Make sure you have her books in your library. You can’t go wrong."

—Richard B. Gilbert, PhD, CT, graduate school of social and behavioral health, Mercy College

"What a remarkable new edition for a trusted resource by a trustworthy clinician! Goldman offers panoramic perspective to the changing grief environments children must navigate in today’s cyberfocused world. Both my mind and my heart were stretched by Goldman’s analysis and insights. The bibliography of recommended children’s books is superb. Goldman’s writing deflates the cultural clichés, and readers will think about this book long after they have finished it."

—Harold Ivan Smith, DMin, FT, Saint Luke's Hospital, Kansas City, and author of Borrowed Narratives: Using Biographical and Historical Grief Narratives With the Bereaving

"Linda Goldman provides invaluable insight and clear direction for coping with life after loss; we have relied on her inspired work to guide hundreds of our traumatically bereaved families from despair into hope. She is an absolute treasure, and Life and Loss is an absolute must for every caregiver's bookshelf."

—Bonnie Carroll, president and founder, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors
