5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Interventions for Bereaved Children, 22 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Creative Interventions for Bereaved Children: 1 (Paperback)
Lowenstein tackles one of the most difficult areas in working with distressed children: bereavement and loss. For many therapists it is especially difficult if we have also suffered recent loss. This book takes a practical and gentle approach that will help build the therapeutic relationship between therapist and child.

The author addresses a very important area of sudden loss through suicide and murder, not only in looking at the children's confused feelings but also the spin off of stigma and possible media attention.

The book is divided into the following sections: 1) Guidelines for practitioners, 2) A Theoretical Overview, 3)Meeting with Caregivers, 4)Interventions to Engage and Assess Bereaved Children, 5)Interventions to Process Grief Reactions, 6) Interventions to Help Children Understand Death, 7) Interventions to Commemorate the Deceased, 8) Interventions to Facilitate Coping and Enhance Self-Esteem, Interventions to Address Special Issues, 10) Interventions for Group Sessions, 11) Interventions for Family Sessions.

There is a comprehensive selection of stories for children throughout the book, as well as relevant examples of practice. There is a good selection of recommended books, especially books for children.

This book certainly has an important place in my play therapy bookshelf
