36 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Michael J Craw PhD ABPP on September 27, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Worden's latest edition of his now classic handbook offers updated research, further refinement of the task model, and greater clarity regarding the mediators of the grief process. He presents a very balanced look at efforts to define complicated mourning and offers timely commentary on the proposed changes to the next DSM. From advanced psychotherapists, to students, and even lay people interested in grief, all will find his book enlightening. It is rare to come across a book that has such broad appeal on such an important topic. There are many choices on the topic of grief, but few if any are as well researched and thoroughly conceptualized as Grief Counseling and Grief Therapy: A Handbook for the Mental Health Practitioner, 4th Edition.

Brilliant book. I am a social work professional. I found this book to be evidence based with relevant research, history on the topic including interesting stuff on the debate around terminology that has been happening in anticipation of DSMV. However, great strength is that it is also designed for practitioners and has detailed suggestions to enhance practice as well as great advice on self care and training. I've read and trained others on this topic and this is one of three I currently recommend to those I train.

Format: Hardcover
This book has been on my book shelf for years as one of the best references I've ever found on the grieving process. It's an academic and theoretical book written for professional counselors rather than people who are grieving. It provides the best theoretical foundation I've ever seen.

I recommend it as essential reading for professional counselors but not for those who are actually grieving.

This is a great book. Very easy to understand. Scientific and human at the same time. If you are a health professional or a social worker or a church minister, you should read it and always have it close.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I would love to, if it weren't so personal. My husband passed away on March 3 of this year so I'm dealing with grieving. My counselor recommended this book, and frankly, when I saw the subtitle, "Handbook for Practitioners" (of psychotherapy), I almost returned it, until I took about five minutes to discover how very readable and helpful it is. Like my counselor, I find Dr. Worden's Task Therapy very practical and accessible to the non-specialist reader. I just ordered a gift copy for a friend, who lost her husband a matter of days after my husband's death.

It's a blessing, truly.
