  8. Dealing with Dying, Death, and Grief during Adolescence

    For some, life’s introduction to death and grief comes early, and when it does it can take many forms.

  9. Support Self-Harm Awareness Month this March

    It's important for practitioners to remember that when clients hate themselves, it resonates to hurt themselves. Self-harming behaviors evoke tremendous shame, which fuels self-hatred and perpetuates the cycle. Working with clients to approach their self-harm with compassion, helping them understand why they do what they do, and then offering them other ways to communicate, self-regulate, and cope, are the major cornerstones of treatment." - Lisa Ferentz, author of Treating Self-Destructive Behaviors in Trauma Survivors

    In support of Self-Harm Awareness Month and the many professionals working with clients to self-harm, Routledge is proud to offer a 20% discount on all orders placed on our websites. Use code SHA14 to redeem and get free shipping on orders over $35.

  10. Bereavement Care for Families

    Grief is a family affair. When a loved one dies, the distress reverberates throughout the immediate and extended family. Family therapy has long attended to issues of loss and grief, yet not as the dominant therapeutic paradigm. Bereavement Care for Families changes that: it is a practical resource for the clinician, one that draws upon the evidence supporting family approaches to bereavement care and also provides clinically oriented, strategic guidance on how to incorporate family approaches into other models.
