Contemporary Psychology

Worden ... has again provided mental health professionals with a superb guide describing specific principles and procedures that may be helpful in working with bereaved clients undergoing normal or abnormal grief reactions ... an extremely practical book and an invaluable resource.

Caregivers Quarterly

If you had one book dealing with grief counseling available to you, this is the one you should select.

The process of grief counseling is outlined in this book describing what people experience following a loss, how to help people through their grief, how to tell the difference between uncomplicated and complicated grief, and how to treat complicated grief. Current developments in the field since 1991 are incorporated in this third edition, which adds seven "mediators of mourning" to the previous framework of four "tasks of mourning." There is new information on special types of losses such as sudden death, abortion, and suicide. Worden is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and holds academic appointments at Harvard Medical School and at the Rosemead Graduate School of Psychology. He has lectured and written on topics related to terminal illness and bereavement. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
