Children vary in their response to the death of a loved one. Some children develop relatively few symptoms or problems, while others face significant or prolonged symptoms, such as posttraumatic stress disorder or anxiety. Similarly, children vary in their circumstances and preferences. Thus, clinicians who work with bereaved children must customize interventions to meet the specific needs of each individual child. This book presents Integrated Grief Therapy for Children - an evidence-based model for treating bereaved children that draws extensively on cognitive - behavioral, family systems, and narrative approaches to therapy.
