Book Description

Nov. 19 2003 1583913645 978-1583913642 1
This book provides a concise, yet comprehensive guide to effective work with bereaved parents, combining a broad overview of current research, theory, and practice with the authors' own extensive clinical experience. Transcripts of individual, couple, and group meetings illustrate the delicate subtleties of this work, giving the reader helpful insights into more effective clinical practice. The authors emphasize the importance of approaching each parent as a unique person, while also considering the socio-cultural context of the bereaved. This book helps clinicians approach work with bereaved parents with a less scripted format, suggesting an alternative role as expert companion to the bereaved, allowing for a more uplifting experience for both parties.

Review

"I was particularly struck by the authors' balance between acknowledging what research can tell us whilst accepting the individual differences which might be encountered in practice...They recommend a stance which they call 'expert companionship' which blends human compassion with a degree of expertise that may not be available from friends and relatives: 'expertise is woven into your interactions, rather than revealed through knowledge'." - David Trickey, Chartered Clinical Psychologist in BereavementCare, Vol. 25, No.1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensitive and Helpful Feb. 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The title says it's for clinicians, but this book is written in a style that anybody can understand. It is sensitive and you can tell the authors know what they are talking about.
As a clinician, I would recommend it to other counselors and I would also highly recommend the book to ANYBODY who wants to know more about grief and bereavement in general, and about this kind of tragic and paintful loss in particular.
