This is a practical course book that links loss, grief and bereavement to counselling skills. In a clear, concise style it provides the theoretical background to attachment and loss and gives case studies, exercises and personal accounts of loss to help the reader develop and enhance core skills when working in this area. This is an essential text for anyone concerned with the impact of grief in adult life. As a valuable teaching resource it can be used in bereavement and loss counselling courses, in Diploma and MA related courses and in palliative care training. Professionals working in a range of settings including universities, hospitals, counselling and education, the community, hospices and nursing homes will benefit from the wide range of examples of loss included in the pages, while practitioners and lecturers will find the contents both informative and thought provoking. Dying, Death and Grief: Working with Adult Bereavement takes into account areas that are frequently overlooked in bereavement and loss training such as sexuality, spiritual responses to loss, cultural influences and diversity as well as the nature of chronic and disenfranchised grief. In a style that is compassionate and empathic, the writer takes a difficult subject and makes it both accessible and life-enhancing.
