Description

Leading therapists illustrate how they help clients cope with the many facets of the grieving process in this compassionate book. They clarify many aspects of how we can all suffer grief and how grief is a compendium of rage, guilt, self-accusation, and other negative emotions. The experts explore the grieving process as it relates to persons suffering from a great loss, as well as to dying patients, children of alcoholics, adult incest survivors, Vietnam veterans, and elders dealing with retirement and chronic physical disabilities.
