Handbook of Adolescent Death and Bereavement
Charles A. Corr, David E. Balk
Springer, Jan 1, 1996 - Medical - 420 pages
In this comprehensive handbook, Charles Corr and David Balk improve our understanding of the challenges faced by adolescents when coping with death, dying, and bereavement. The volume is organized into three parts. Part I addresses specific issues involved in confrontations with death. Part II focuses on the role of bereavement. Part III explains specific therapeutic interventions for caregivers. The authors introduce us to adolescence as a special time in the human life cycle, a period quite separate from childhood and adulthood. They establish normative adolescent life transitions, explore differences among adolescents, and explain developmental tasks that are typical of early, middle, and late adolescence.
