4.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource May 15 2011
By MWB
Format:Paperback
This book offers a large selection of practical exercises that can be used when supporting bereaved children and their families. It also provides general information and assessments that can be used by the practitioner when they meet a new child. The creative interventions can be utilized in a variety of bereavement situations, including trauma and suicide. I liked how each activity is explained step by step and walks you through the entire exercise. This is a resource that will quickly become the go-to book on your shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! Dec 11 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a wonderful resource for those who work with bereaved children and families. It is full of creative, practical activities to help children and families deal with the death of a loved one. The book also has activities to use with challenging situations, such as traumatic grief, suicide and homicide. There is a curriculum that can be used in therapy or support groups, and a chapter of activities to use in family therapy. In addition, there is a handout for parents and another one for school personnel, to provide them with tips on how to support grieving children. This book is among the best I have seen on this topic, and it will be an invaluable resource for grief therapists, counselors, grief camps, support groups, etc. Other books on this topic I recommend:

Mourning Child Grief Support Group Curriculum (Lehman)
When Dinosaurs Die (Krasny & Brown)
Tear Soup (Schwiebert & Deklyn)
Great Answers to Difficult Questions about Death: What Children Need to Know (Goldman)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Dec 4 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent resource for practitioners who work with children who have experienced loss. In addition to a variety of smart activities specifically designed for children who are grieving, this well-researched book includes a theoretical overview and guideline for engaging primary caregivers. The author, Liana Lowenstein, covers the core issues that children of all ages deal with when they lose someone that they love in a thoughtful, child-friendly manner. Like Lowenstein's other books, Creative Interventions for Troubled Children and Youth, More Creative Interventions for Troubled Children and Youth, and Creative Interventions for Bereaved Children, this book is easy-to-use and highly effective. I strongly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a must have! May 20 2010
By Stacey aka Coffey Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been using Ms. Lowenstein's books for many years in my work with children and adolescents. These books are always within in reach when I work with children as I feel they are quite instrumental in my work. What I like about them is that they focused on issues--divorce, grief, loss, bereavement, troubled youth-- that most books don't discuss as clearly. In my work with various populations I found Ms. Lowenstein's activities to be readily adaptable to every situation.

The activities are creative and allow the child or adolescent to focus on what activity they are completing while not realizing that they are doing a therapeutic activity. It is a great addition to talk therapy aiding a youth who has difficulty verbalizing their feelings. Children often lose their voice when they experience difficult situations and these activities aid in restoring it for them. The activities are easy to implement and don't require a great deal of prep time. However, the clinician should be prepared prior to implementing each activity.

Every social worker, clinically trained counselor, psychologist and play therapist should have her books as a part of their therapeutic library. I feel they are the most practical resource for professionals who are working with children with the issues that these books address--bereavement, divorce and trauma.

Make sure your shelves include: Creative Interventions for Children of Divorce, CI for Troubled Youth, Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents and Families (Volumes One and Two) and the other books written by Ms. Lowenstein.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for therapists with clients dealing with death and dying Oct. 1 2011
By G. Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I puchased this book last year to work with an 8-year-old client whose mother had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. It was difficult to find resources that dealt with the issues of grief and loss when the loved one has been diagnosed as terminally ill, but has not passed away yet. I found that although the language in this book was geared towards grieving someone who has already died, many of the activities were easily reworded and adapted to fit my client's situation. The activities made it possible for her to broach topics that she would likely have not brought up on her own and opened doors to some very meaningful conversations and interactions.

Other books on the topic of grief and loss that I recommend are:
Fire in My Heart, Ice in My Veins: A Journal for Teenagers Experiencing a Loss
Because . . . Someone I Love Has Cancer: Kids' Activity Book
I Miss You: A First Look At Death
Samantha Jane's Missing Smile: A Story About Coping With the Loss of a Parent

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! March 1 2011
By Bonnie Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is my favorite Lowenstein resource yet! In this book, Lowenstein provides a comprehensive guide to working with grieving children (including a chart on how grief affects children at different developmental ages) as well as a plethora of detailed but easy to complete activities. Each and every activity in this book is relevant and well thought out. The activities flow easily from one to the next, making it a practical guide for treatment goal planning as well. What a wonderful resource to have in my office!

Other books I recommend on the topic :

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book when working with a bereaved child April 22 2010
By David P. Diana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is my go-to book when I am working with a bereaved child and their family or when I have run a grief group. I always find great tools to use and my clients respond so well. The author allows you to copy the activities to use with clients. There is also a useful handout to copy and give to parents and school personnel to help them understand and respond to the needs of grieving children. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!
