Description - Grief and Loss Across the Lifespan by Judith L. M. McCoyd
This newly revised and updated textbook for undergraduate and master's level social work and counseling courses on loss, grief, and bereavement uses a biopsychosocial perspective and developmental framework to map a lifespan trajectory of the experience of loss and grief, and provides clinical intervention tools and strategies for coping. The authors review important grief theories, and discuss current topics in grief, including resilience, mindfulness, the role of social media and grief expressions, the DSM-V, transitional adults (ages 18-25) experiences, and more! With the help of this book, practitioners and students of grief counseling can learn to help patients of all ages understand that loss is at the heart of life and growth.
