5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for bereavement counsellors and the bereaved., 24 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Continuing Bonds: New Understandings of Grief (Series in Death Education, Aging, & Health Care) (Paperback)
This book gives a modern approach to bereavement, taking away the 'old' thinking by psychotherapists researchers, that a continuing relationship with the deceased is considered as 'complicated' or 'unresolved' grief. As well as a good resource for bereavement counsellors showing understanding of the grief process, it can be of help to those who are bereaved, whether it is a spouse, child or parent who has died. They question the previous assumption that for grief to be completed (and, indeed they do not consider that grief is ever really completed) then, in the case of the death of a spouse, to move on, means to start a new relationship. This is really a breath of fresh air amongst the many texts and research into bereavement counselling. The authors openly admit that their findings are not conclusive and welcome new findings in this difficult area of life. My interest in the book came from both having been bereaved myself, and later, during my training as a counsellor.
