Additional Book Details

With this book, John H. Harvey—widely acknowledged as a key founder of the field of loss and trauma—introduces this broad, interdisciplinary field to undergraduate and beginning graduate students. While many texts cover individual areas such as death and dying or stress and coping, none cover the diversity of loss events that Harvey does in this single volume. Perspectives on Loss and Trauma is the first undergraduate text to present major loss as an encompassing category that includes trauma, death and dying, and stress and coping. It reviews theory and research on the most challenging types of human loss and trauma:

death and dying
disease and injuries
war and violence
divorce and dissolution
unemployment and homelessness
the holocaust and genocide

Written in consideration of cross-cultural, international perspectives on loss, Perspectives on Loss and Trauma discusses relevant therapy approaches and emphasizes a story-telling approach to coping with major loss. It concludes with chapters on therapy and personal adjustment to loss, providing immediate applicability to counselors, therapists, social workers, and other human service professionals.
