Techniques of Grief Therapy: Assessment and Intervention continues where the acclaimed Techniques of Grief Therapy: Creative Practices for Counseling the Bereaved left off, offering a whole new set of innovative approaches to grief therapy to address the needs of the bereaved. This new volume provides a variety of specific and practical therapeutic techniques, each conveyed in concrete detail and anchored in an illustrative case study.

Techniques of Grief Therapy: Assessment and Intervention also features a whole new section on assessment, featuring contributions by leading developers of the clinical scales used to evaluate various challenges in coping with loss, with inclusion of the actual scales and scoring keys to facilitate their use by practitioners and researchers. Offering both an orientation to bereavement work and an indispensable toolkit for counseling survivors of losses of many kinds, this book belongs on the shelf of both experienced clinicians and those just beginning to delve into the field of grief therapy.
