Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198529090, Paperback)

The contact between a health care professional and a bereaved child can often be very brief, and yet the interaction can have a profound effect on the child, and on the professional themself. This book describes and illustrates the concept of brief therapeutic work with bereaved children and families. Recent years have seen increasing interest in the needs of children facing bereavement, and a corresponding increase in services to support them. Brief Interventions with Bereaved children addresses and explains the theoretical concepts and practical implications behind the idea of brief work with bereaved children and families. Flexible and accessible short term services delivered at the right time underpin the strengths of bereaved children, supporting their recovery rather than pathologising the grief process. The topic of this book is unique in the field, and will appeal to palliative care practitioners, educators and service providers managing scarce resources. The book feautures some distinguished contributors with backgrounds in health care, education, social work and the police, alongside theoretical and practice based chapters from workers in the field of bereavement care for children. There is also a chapter from the service user's perspective.
