"This book is a marvelous, intelligent response to the call for bridging the gap separating bereavement researchers and practitioners. Each chapter's collaborative team synthesizes important scholarship, provides challenging case studies, and persuasively addresses the nagging practitioner question of "So what?" The writing crackles, insights abound, and we are offered wide-ranging critical and experiential wisdom about a legion of bereavement realities that bedevil human beings." - David E. Balk, author of Helping the Bereaved College Student "This landmark book has achieved a stunning integration of research and clinical practice. The structure is bold and innovative, and the book provides readers with an unparalleled opportunity to appreciate the common threads linking research and applied work on bereavement." - Camille Wortman, coauthor of Traumatic Bereavement: Treatment for Survivors of Sudden Death "The editors of this very readable and stimulating volume have taken the unique step of bringing together practitioners and researchers to write joint chapters on a wide range of topical issues in the bereavement field. No longer can it be said that those working in one of these capacities fail to take the wisdom, knowledge, expertise and experience of the other seriously. This is a highly significant contribution to our field." - Margaret S. Stroebe, coeditor of the Handbook of Bereavement Research and Practice: Advances in Theory and Intervention
