"Though mourning and intimations of mortality often enter the therapeutic space, few psychotherapy books focus on this. At the same time, the therapeutic input into UK palliative services is often not strategically thought through, not the least because of voluntary sector involvement with NHS services. This book is therefore a welcome exploration of therapeutic practice when dealing with death... As a consultant practitioner in the field, I can see myself using this book as part of an educational programme. It is a valuable contribution to the ongoing development of this specialism within the therapeutic field." - Ana Draper, Mortality, Vol. 14, No. 4, November 2009
"When Death Enters the Therapeutic Space is an excellent work for giving therapists some background in dealing with the realities as well as the philosophies of dying." - Bassima Schbley, Ph.D., in the Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
