Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover


In this comprehensive handbook, a leading group of experts improve our understanding of the challenges faced by children when coping with death, dying, and bereavement. Organized into three parts, the volume addresses specific issues involved in confrontations with death; discusses the role of bereavement; and explains specific therapeutic interventions for caregivers.

The reader is introduced to four distinct periods within childhood--infancy, toddlerhood, early childhood, and middle childhood. Through case examples, the contributors illustrate a child's experience with death and bereavement in all four areas. The book's practical orientation and emphasis will appeal to a broad array of caregivers including counselors, therapists, nurses, and mental health practitioners concerned with child and adolescent death and bereavement.
