"Worden... has again provided mental health professionals with a superb guide describing specific principles and procedures that may be helpful in working with bereaved clients undergoing normal or abnormal grief reactions... an extremely practical book and an invaluable resource." --Contemporary Psychology "This book is the 'Bible' for those involved in the field of bereavement work...It is a straightforward, tightly focused, practical, soundly reasoned, compact working text." --William M. Lamers, Jr., MD., The Lamers Medical Group "If you had one book dealing with grief counseling available to you, this is the one you should select." --Caregiver Quarterly"
J. William Worden, PhD, ABPP
"The Fourth Edition of this book retains all the theoretical strengths and clinical wisdom of past editions, while incorporating emerging theories and cutting-edge research. It is required reading for any counselor, educator, or researcher who wishes to understand grief."
-- Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, Professor, The Graduate School, The College of New Rochelle, Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America
"I can't think of a thing Worden has missed."
-- Stephen Fleming, PhD, Department of Psychology, Faculty of Health, York University Toronto, Ontario Canada
"[If] you knew Worden's work and his writings previously, you'll find an enhanced book with a much broader and challenging perspective than his previous editions. If you are not familiar with Bill Worden, then it is time to begin."
-- Ben Wolfe, MEd, LICSW, Fellow in Thanatology, Program Manager/Grief Counselor, St. Mary's Medical Center's Grief Support Center Duluth, MN, Past President, Association for Death Education and Counseling
"For any hospice or therapist working with the bereaved, Grief counseling and grief therapy is an essential part of your library. Once again Worden has demonstrated the important distinction between counseling and therapy for the bereaved."
--Stephen R. Connor, PhD, Vice President for Research and International Development, National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization
Praise for the Previous Edition:
"This book is the 'Bible' for those involved in the field of bereavement work...It is a straightforward, tightly focused, practical, soundly reasoned, compact working text."
-- William M. Lamers Jr., MD, The Lamers Medical Group
"There are many yardsticks by which we find a person to be a “giant.” In the fields of death education, research and counseling/psychology, surely Bill Worden is a giant....His four volumes span some 20 years. Each volume keeps the solid essentials that never really change, but get some buffing and polishing....Worden demands that we stay current and will not tolerate anything that hints of second best. The foundations stay, but the substance continues to evolve. So, with volume four we have a handy, well-stated review....ALL of us, personally and professionally, are indebted to J. William Worden. From his work we may be just a bit wiser, a bit healthier, a bit more competent, and a lot more in touch with meaning (our own and those of others) for the sake of all who mourn."
