Additional Book Details

This book offers a fresh insight into working practices with children and young people who are experiencing the death of a family member, friend, school peer or in their social network. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, the book's practical skills focus is informed by the latest research findings on children and young people's experience of grief. The wide-ranging content includes:



- a comprehensive review of theoretical approaches to bereavement


- the impact of different types of grief on children


- working with children who have been bereaved in traumatic circumstances, such as through criminal behaviour


- skills development.



The list of resources, case studies and exercises encourage critical engagement with the counselling theory and promote reflexive practice. Trainees in counselling, psychotherapy and social work, as well as teachers and mental health workers, will find this an invaluable resource for working with this vulnerable client group.
