Editorial Reviews

Review

Goldman is well established as child's advocate, counselor and frien. Her many publications, programs as well as personal interventions have brought endless comfort and care to children and to their familites. This book is about life and loss, and about children. Goldman uses story, craft, feelings to guide children and parents. Goldman is a name you will remember, and wisely so.
–Resources Hotline

In reviewing the first edition of this book, Bereavement Magazine called it a fantastically complete teaching manual for everyone working/living/loving with grieving children. I would heartily agree.
When I review, I don't usually interject personal information. However, the issue of children's grief is close to my heart. As I read this manual, it was clear that support persons in our life needed the very information this book provides. It wasn't available then. School problems, behavior problems, etc. were dealt with reactively and punitively. Many situations might have played out much differently if all of us had really understood the far-reaching responses that children have to grief experience.

Karyn Reddick, Diplomate College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy


Life and Loss is a resource guide for professionals with a breadth of information about the many intricacies of loss. As professionals, we often seek a resource to help educate kids, parents or ourselves on appropriate ways to deal with trauma and grief. Life and Loss is what we seek. This reader friendly book gives strategies to recognize different types of childhood losses, understand the many myths related to grief, and identify behaviors associated with grief, practical strategies for use with grieving children and an extensive resource bibliography. It is a resource in which I have passed on parents, teachers and other professionals in the field. Life and Loss is a comprehensive and generalizable resource for working with children in the areas of loss and grief..

The updated edition of Life and Loss is wonderful. the new chapter on the community grief team, the expanded techiques for therapists and educators, the addition of grief camps and websites for children, and the updated abundance of resources for children have increased its usefullness and deepened my understanding of working with children and grief. Thank you, Linda Goldman, for a job well done.

This is the best resource I have read on working with children and grief. This book is a very personal book, it feels more one-on-one than like a lecture. It is easy to read and practical in every way. I recommend this book highly to anyone who has, or is working with grieving children.

This book gave me all I was looking for. We have lots of trauma in South Africa with crime and hold ups of families in their homes, parents are killed. This is a great help in dealing with these children
