'Techniques of Grief Therapy: Assessment and Intervention merits a place in every grief counselor's library. These 66 chapters are a repository of great wisdom and the most current approaches, and they offer much, including underlying theory, assessment instruments, and a wide range of carefully described intervention strategies that encompass areas such as assisting clients in coping with emotion, reaffirming continuing bonds, reconstructing meaning, and utilizing ritual in individual and group settings. This volume will become a classic in the field and should be required reading for every counselor or therapist helping individuals cope with loss.'
