In this comprehensive handbook, Charles Corr and Donna Corr improve our understanding of the challenges faced by children when coping with death, dying, and bereavement. Organized into three parts, this volume addresses specific issues involved in confrontations with death, discusses the role of bereavement, and explains specific therapeutic interventions for caregivers. This text introduces us to four distinct periods within childhoodinfancy, toddlerhood, early childhood, and middle childhood. Through case examples, the Corrs illustrate a child's experience with death and bereavement in all four areas. The book's practical orientation and emphasis will appeal to a broad array of caregivers including counselors, therapists, nurses, and mental health practitioners concerned with child and adolescent death and bereavement.
