Grief, Dying, and Death
Clinical Interventions for CaregiversBook - 1984
Important topics such as anticipatory grief, postdeath mourning, and the stress of grief are described in detail. Grief reactions, both normal and abnormal, as well as their causes are analyzed. Special attention is given to grief caused by the death of a child or spouse, death by suicide, and children's grief.
Numerous exercises and case examples are included to help the caregiver recognize the highly individual processes of grief and dying, and to assess each patient's and family's unique situation.
