Promotional Information

"An exquisitely written, well researched, compassionate, and definitive book on loss and grief for social workers and other practitioners. Hooyman and Kramer share their own poignant stories, reaching down to the deepest level of experience and loss, that serve to illustrate issues faced by bereaved individuals. The book is unique in its lifespan approach to common losses, its integration of the diversity of the human experience, and its focus on recent evidence-based interventions. The section on professional self-awareness and self-care offers concrete strategies for the prevention of some of the challenges in working with the bereaved. All professionals -- and I suspect others as well -- will benefit from this major achievement." -- Colette V. Browne, University of Hawaii, School of Social Work
