This core introductory text, with a focus on clinical application, combines the knowledge and skills of counseling psychology with current theory and research in grief and bereavement. The third edition is updated to address issues related to the developmental aspects of grief, including grief in children and young people, grief as a lifespan concept, and grief in an increasingly aging demographic. It describes new therapeutic approaches and examines the neurological basis of grief as well as with trauma from disruption and loss. Also emphasized is the role of diversity, along with cultural considerations in grief counseling. Instructor's resources now include a test bank, an Instructors Manual, and updated Power Point slides.
