by J. William Worden, PhD
In this updated and revised third edition of his classic text, Dr. Worden presents his current thinking on bereavement drawn from extensive research, clinical work, and current literature. Readers will find new information on special types of losses, including children's violent deaths, grief and the elderly, and anticipatory grief as well as refinements to his basic model for mourning.
This third edition of Grief Counseling and Grief Therapy does more than present new insights on Worden's four tasks of mourning. This work guides practitioners by outlining and explaining a seven point system of ''mediators of mourning.'' In addition, a series of vignettes, the best of the first and second editions plus several new to this edition, bring bereavement issues into a practical and purposeful process of change.
