"Making an excellent book even better, Jeffreys' updated edition richly integratesaprofessional and personal information to provide caregivers with the tools to best enable coping in the dying and bereaved. A superb resource!" - Therese A. Rando, PhD, BCETS, BCBT, The Institute for the Study and Treatment of Loss, Rhode Island, USA "Shep Jeffreys provides a great tool for clinicians and a gift for individuals struggling with loss. This book offers compassionate observations ! as well as an integration of the most contemporary theories and research." - Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, Professor, The Graduate School, The College of New Rochelle, New York, USA; Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America "What makes this book unique is how Dr. Jeffreys blends his own experiences with the loss of his son into the fabric of what is a most useful book. I highly recommend it." -William Worden, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Rosemead School of Psychology, Biola University, California, USA "Shep Jeffreys models admirably his own ideal as an 'exquisite witness care provider' for grieving people, drawing upon lessons learned from his own loss experiences and experiences of grieving people in diverse life circumstances." - Thomas Attig, PhD, Past President, Association for Death Education and Counseling "The additional research adds greater breadth and depth to an array of outstanding clinical and pastoral resources. [This is] a valuable clinical and pastoral reference." - Rev. C. Kevin Gillespie, SJ, PhD, Associate Professor, Loyola University of Chicago's Institute of Pastoral Studies, USA "In Helping Grieving People, Jeffreys artfully combines theory and research with clinical and personal experience. The book captures the complexity of the grief process and offers useful and practical guidelines for anyone supporting the bereaved." - Carol Wogrin, PsyD, RN, Director, National Center for Death Education, Mount Ida College, Massachusetts, USA "Some books hook a reader early. This one hooked me with a story--of a boy named Steven who died too young and a family who chose to embrace grief. Only a professional who has experienced grief so 'close up,' and who has spent his career caring for grievers, can write so powerfully and so authentically." - Harold Ivan Smith, DMin, FT, Saint Luke's Hospital, Kansas City, USA "Shep Jeffreys has presented a clear and unmistakably informative resource for any caring adult working with the grieving population. His work personifies an experienced professional from the heart quality of this book, to self awareness exercise, grieving principles, and useful interventions and resources." - Linda Goldman, MS, LCPC, FT, private practice, Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA "This is a wise, helpful, accessible book with excellent grounding in the literature and the author's practice and personal experience. It is an invaluable foundation for beginners at helping the bereaved, and there are also many riches for experienced helpers." - Paul C. Rosenblatt, PhD, Professor of Family Social Science, the University of Minnesota, USA "This edition is even better and more complete than the original. It is a must-must have, must-read for caregivers. It overflows with good advice and good sense, clearly the work of someone who has known both ends of the healing process, as a healer and as one who needed healing and found it." - Rabbi Harold Kushner, Author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People "Dr. Jeffreys presents a clear understanding of the nature of grief based on empirically supported models and time-tested theories. This book is an invaluable resource and deserves a place in the core curriculum of any helping professional who wishes to be of service to people who are grieving." - Ira Byock, MD, Director, Palliative Care Service, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, New Hampshire
