Editorial Reviews


This book is filled with excellent chapters that bring us up to date with the most current information on both pre-death and post-death interventions. These experts tell us what we currently know and point us in the direction of what we still need to investigate. Read these chapters carefully but in the final analysis, always use your own experiences of loss as a touchstone for what is true. --Dr. J. William Worden, Harvard Medical School (From the Foreword)
