"Writing in Bereavement" is a practical creative handbook that will assist counsellors, volunteers and others in their work with bereaved adults. Writing is a powerful outlet for the emotions that accompany grief and it is therefore a valuable therapeutic tool to help those who are bereaved communicate their experiences and adjust to life after their loss. Jane Moss provides imaginative creative writing exercises for groups and individuals, using a variety of genres and literary forms and techniques. She offers advice on how to plan and run successful workshops with the bereaved, and how to evaluate their effectiveness. Using the techniques in this book, counsellors can help grieving individuals find a voice to cope with profound changes in their life, complete unfinished conversations, write for remembrance, use creativity as a respite from sadness, and finally begin to move forward from grief and imagine the future. "Writing for Therapy or Personal Development", a foundation library to a rapidly developing field, covers the theory and practice of key areas. Clearly exemplified, engaging and accessible, the series is appropriate for therapeutic, healthcare, or creative writing practitioners and facilitators, and for individual writers or courses.

I give this book four stars because it provides several ideas for working through grief in numerous ways.
As a volunteer at Bereaved Families of Ontario, I see a variety of uses for this book.

I lost my son five years ago to Leukemia. There are people who suggest that I could write a book about the experience;
as a nurse who worked in Hematology and as a mother whose son was a Hematology patient.
It's difficult to know where to start but Jane Moss' book is full of ideas.
