Product Description

Review

'I could hardly put this book down. The clear and engaging text of the prefaces continues throughout, and it certainly lives up to its description on the cover as 'a practical approach to loss and bereavement in counselling and psychotherapy'. The authors make no assumptions as to who the reader might be, and the straightforward language and updated research findings provide rich material for anyone lecturing, practicing or studying to work in pastoral care.' - Rosemary Markham, Psychodynamic Practice

This new edition builds on an existing text of merit. It is an important book both for students and practitioners familiar with the old edition, as well as new readers.' - Bereavement Care

'This book is based on a wealth of experience and knowledge and that was consistently evident. This is one of those books that both skilled practitioners and beginners will find helpful. It is also useful to everyone in a persoanl sense - it will resonate with all our worlds as loss is experienced by us all.' - Moira Walker, European Journal of Psychotherapy and Counselling

Product Description

This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Gift of Tears includes new research and examples of recent events to help illustrate the effects of loss. Containing a strong practical element, the book guides the reader through the process of contemplating and eventually confronting their own relationship to loss.

Written by experienced counsellors and psychotherapists, the book contains candid and readable discussions of central issues, including:

* how to understand and work with anger and guilt
* attachment patterns and loss
* historical changes in attitudes to death and bereavement
* death as a particular form of loss.

Gift of Tears is intended for anyone who finds they have to cope, in the course of their daily lives, with the grief of others. It will prove invaluable to counsellors, therapists, mental health professionals and all those helping the bereaved.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide 29 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a thoughtful, carefully written book on a difficult and challenging topic: how to help people who have been bereaved.
An impossible task, one might say; and yet The Gift of Tears is full of useful analysis and advice.
The authors remain as objective as possible in an area which challenges our most fundamental beliefs and assumptions,
and provide real-life examples to back up their theoretical insights.
This book is recommended by CRUSE, a national charity which was set up to help the bereaved; and one can see why.
