About the Author

Robert Gordon University, UK University of Manchester, UK


'Why is this a valuable volume for every professional and volunteer dealing with people suffering the loss of a loved one? Basically because it provides state of the art information of theoretical and practical interest on a very wide variety of topics related to grief, bereavement and bereavement care. Everyone who is interested in grief and bereavement care can find solid evidence based information on almost every topic that is explored. A valuable addition to the grief and bereavement library of every health and social care professional.' -- Dr H.A.W. Schut, Utrecht University, the Netherlands 'Wow! What a book! This is a gem for all health and social care professionals with any involvement in bereavement support work. Peter Wimpenny and John Costello have brought together an impressive team of authors who have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and they share their knowledge in clearly and concisely written chapters, which are often a joy to read. This book is intended to introduce readers to aspects of bereavement which are grouped in three sections: bereavement experiences across the life span, bereavement support requirements in specific working environments and finally two chapters dealing with organisational and educational aspects. The chapters are well structured and reference lists allow keen students to follow up their favourite topics. I particularly recommend the chapters on children's deaths and perinatal loss. I am sure that this book will become a well used and wise companion to all those who support people dealing with the challenges of bereavement.' -- Professor Sheila Payne, Lancaster University, UK
