The death of a loved one can create special challenges for adolescents. This manual provides information, guidelines, and suggestions for parents, teachers, and other caregivers in helping teenagers who have lost a parent, sibling, or close friend through death.

Drawing on their own extensive experience as bereavement counsellors, the authors explain in detail how to conduct a bereavement support group for adolescents. In addition they examine problems typically encountered by bereaved teens, and provide clinical case studies that show a range of grieving patterns. The book includes a description of the mourning and funeral rites practised by a variety of religious and ethnic groups, and concludes with a bibliography and a list of community resources.
