Short Desription

How many of us feel at a loss when faced with a bereaved friend or relative? For those doctors, clergy, lawyers, nurses and others whose work brings them into the lives of the bereaved, a confident and knowledgeable approach to the problem of bereavement is all-important. This volume helps us to understand the roots of grief, the secondary harm that bereavement can cause and the steps that need to be taken to ensure those who suffer it will emerge, not unaffected, but relatively undamaged.

Long recognized as arguably the most authoritative work of its kind, this new edition of Bereavement brings a classic text right up to date. In the ten years since publication of the second edition, there has been a considerable increase in scientific understanding of bereavement and its effects. In the third edition Colin Murray Parkes re-examines his findings in the light of the latest ideas on the subject and draws on his own research to develop some new theories.

The main content of this book is immediately accessible to those who lack a specialist knowledge of psychology, although scientific and technical data are included in the appendix for the professional reader. Because of this, the book can easily be recommended to bereaved people who want to understand the powerful and often frightening emotions and symptoms which they experience.
