Praise For Helping Bereaved Children, Second Edition: A Handbook for Practitioners…
"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
