Reviews and Endorsements

‘Salman Akhtar and Gurmeet S. Kanwal offer us a superbly edited volume on bereavement. Its contributors share with the reader their intimate, painful, and profound experiences as they mourn the death of a child, parent, sibling, spouse, or pet. Together, they offer us many new insights, including that “libido” is never completely detached from any relationship. Mental health professionals and lay people alike will benefit from this deep exploration of the timeless and universal experience of mourning.’
––Axel Hoffer, MD, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute

‘Reading this book, I felt accompanied in my own grief. The contributors, all exceptionally thoughtful and scholarly clinicians, illuminate their various losses withselected theoretical constructs, combined with uncommon clarity and emotional generosity. Their heartfelt language invites the reader into an intimate conversation that is moving, unforgettable, and ultimately sustaining. A must-read for those engaged in the “helping” professions and anyone wanting to better understand the role loss plays in our lives.’
––Sandra Buechler, PhD, William Alanson White Institute, New York
