Product Description

Review

'I thoroughly recommend this book for practitioners. Linda Machin is a clear, well structured and well argued writer. The book is laid out in a very accessible way with bullet points, tables and diagrams. The aim of the book is to present the foundations for her theoretical approach to working with loss and grief, based on her practice and research. She intergrates a range of theoretical perspectives (psychodynamic approaches, attachment theory, narrative theory, Dual Process Model of grief, among others) useful to the development of this kind of work and her model to take this further'
Barbara Lalljee
The Quarterly Magazine of the Institute of Transactional Analysis

I purchase most of my therapy books from Amazon. They have an excellent selection. This book is informative and, in my opinion, beneficial to my work with beveaved clients.

The Author of this Book is the Founder of the Organisation I work for as a Counsellor. This Book is a must for anyone working in Bereavement and Loss

The Author is an amazingly talented lady who just oozes energy and vitality in this particularly difficult area of Bereavement Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The Book describes the AAG Scale and it's use and effectiveness ......

A must read for all Practitioners who work with death or life changing illness

Machin's writing leaves much to be desired. 25 April 2014
By Melissa L. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I agree with Machin's over-all approach to using the clients' stories to build a picture of their grief and find her models useful from a clinical standpoint, her writing is extremely dry and repetitive. Much of the later chapters could be put into a single chapter and then followed by the case studies. Instead, we're left rereading the same ideas stated over and over in slightly different ways. Some may see this as a method for information retention, but this is written for a clinician at (most likely) the graduate level who does not need a text book tailored to examination learning. For a writer who appreciates stories, there is certainly little 'story' to the writing.
