Product Description

Review

'The fourth edition of this book retains all the theoretical strengths and clinical wisdom of past editions, while incorporating emerging theories and cutting-edge research. It is required reading for any counselor, educator, or researcher who wishes to understand grief.' - Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, Professor, The Graduate School, The College of New Rochelle; Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America, USA

Synopsis

In this updated and revised fourth edition of his classic text, Dr. Worden presents his most recent thinking on bereavement drawn from extensive research, clinical work, and the best of the new literature. Besides addressing a number of new topics, the book includes the best vignettes from the first three editions to bring bereavement issues to life for students and practitioners.

Having recently been through the experience of caring for and nursing a dying beloved one to the point of death, I looked for material that could help me cope with and better understand the grief I now experience after the passing of my life partner. J. William Worden's Grief Counselling and Grief Therapy is a comprehensive and scientifically well-grounded handbook that is also humane and free from dogmatism. Worden helps both students of (e.g.) medicine, psychiatry and social work - and the grieving reader - to begin to understand the sheer complexity and unpredictability of the greving process within a broad interpretative framework. Above all, Professor Worden helps the reader distinguish between 'normal' and 'abnormal' grieving.

I'm currently studying to be a Cruse bereavement volunteer after suffering many deaths (old and young) over the past 20 years and borrowed an old version of this book from our Cruse branch. I loved it so much I bought this updated version. Not only is it a fantastic reference guide for those of us studying grief and bereavement but it's written in such a clear and sensitive way it would be helpful for anyone struggling to understand their own grief or the grief of others. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is a really important book which acknowledges the way in which grief can hold us back. Its descriptions of what Worden describes as 'complicated grieving' will be recognised by anyone who has found that their grief doesn't diminish with time. It also offers hope. Highly recommended.

Thank you for my book. I got it this morning and I am already finding that it is easy reading and very informative. I also like the Grief Training sessions at the end of the book. I know this will enhance my studies greatly.

Read this book after reading the incredable book 'on death and dying' by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in which I learnt so much about how a person feels when he/she is dying. This is a helpful book for counselors and health care workers to understand grief. yes I would recommend it along with E Kubler-Ross book
