This updated second edition provides a model for practitioners working with those who are grieving a significant life loss. Making clear connections between theory and practice, the 'Range of Response to Loss' model provides a theoretical 'compass' for recognising the wide variability in reaction to loss and the 'Adult Attitude to Grief' scale is a tool for 'mapping' individual grief and its change over time, providing an individual grief profile.

Together these offer a framework for practitioners to:

- listen to stories of grief told by clients

- identify common patterns in grief

- recognize individual difference in grief response

- make assessments -prompt therapeutic dialogue

- guide therapeutic focus and -evaluate outcomes.

This edition includes: a new chapter on 'The RRL Model and a Pluralistic Approach to Counselling'; two new case studies; additional content on vulnerability; new grief assessment tools and systems, and the latest research.
