0 Reviews
This book is intended for practitioners who counsel survivors, particularly families who have experienced the death of a child. The qualitative, rather than the quantitative approach used stems from the author's background in thanatology as a hands-on practitioner of grief therapy. The stimulus for the book came from a need that evolved from the author's practice, research, lecturing and therapy supervision of health professionals to provide better care for clients who faced the death of a loved one.
