Editorial Reviews

Review

This is an excellent resource... Highly Recommended.

(Choice)

This book is both a mine of information and provides an enormous amount of food for thought and reflection. Highly recommended.

(Roger Woodruff, Director of Palliative Care, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care News)

Review

An exquisitely written, well researched, compassionate, and definitive book on loss and grief for social workers and other practitioners. Hooyman and Kramer share their own poignant stories, reaching down to the deepest level of experience and loss, that serve to illustrate issues faced by bereaved individuals. The book is unique in its lifespan approach to common losses, its integration of the diversity of the human experience, and its focus on recent evidence-based interventions. The section on professional self-awareness and self-care offers concrete strategies for the prevention of some of the challenges in working with the bereaved. All professionals―and I suspect others as well―will benefit from this major achievement.

(Colette V. Browne, University of Hawaii, School of Social Work)

A 'must read' text for social workers and a broad range of professionals who seek the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on this topic. The authors discuss the losses most frequently experienced at each stage, with a companion chapter on current interventions. The book features a sophisticated cultural competence, the latest theories and research findings, a wealth of helpful summary tables, and an exhaustive bibliography...Sets a gold standard for texts on this vital topic.

(Grace H. Christ, Columbia University School of Social Work)

Living through Loss: Interventions Across the Life Span is destined to become a classic text. In this sensitively written and well researched work, Hooyman and Kramer blend cutting-edge theory, sound clinical practice, and empirical research with insights emerging from personal experience to create a gift for counselors and social workers. This book needs to be read by any social worker, counselor or clinician seeking to counsel anyone at any age living with loss.

(Kenneth J. Doka, The College of New Rochelle and senior consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America)

Loss is an experience that touches every one of us, regardless of culture, ethnicity, age, gender, or spiritual beliefs. Yet the way we respond is as individual as each of us. Living Through Loss examines many important aspects of loss and grieving that should be understood by all professionals offering support. What makes this book particularly relevant is the personal experiences of the authors that brings the discussion into focus in a very powerful and meaningful way.

(Donald Schumacher, president and CEO, National Hospice and Palliative Care Association)

I bought this book for a MSW clinical class and loved it! The writers know how to catch your attention. Not only are they skilled in explaining grief counseling theories, but know how to connect it to real-life experiences. I recommend this to any student or new professional looking to learn more about grief counseling.

I bought this book 5 years ago for a graduate course (and it was one of the best courses I took on life, loss, grief, and death). Surprisingly, I enjoyed reading the whole book and took away quite a bit! It was an easy and fast read with information that can be easily applied to real life situations. A great resource for those working in human services and/or just wanting to learn more about loss and grief. As a professional today, I still keep this book on my bookshelf in my office as a resource.

This book was published in 2006 and it deals with those issues we don't know how to deal with: loss, dying, death, and grief. It is not a psychological tome, it is a heartfelt journey through all the ways we deal with loss: of the people we love, of the careers we strove for, of homes we had before unemployment, of the self-respect we worked hard for. It is so human.
I live in Australia and ordered this just before Christmas and received it Christmas eve!
