Responding to Grief by Caroline Currer

Book Description

This work argues that dying and bereavement are issues for all social care practitioners, illustrating the wide variety of ways in which they are involved. Examples are taken from mainstream as well as specialist settings. Early chapters focus upon the relevance of theoretical understandings and the perspectives of dying and bereaved people themselves. There is detailed consideration of practitioners' accounts of their responses to people who are grieving. Conclusions relate to issues of training and support, and implications for practice.
