To lose a child is not 'appropriate' and the feelings involved become even more difficult to deal with. Professionals are no more exempt from feelings of inadequacy in the face of grief than we are. Personal issues and beliefs complicate matters even further and for fear of intrusion much needed help is often not given. This comprehensive, practical text offers a range of ideas and materials that can assist reflective, research-based clinical practice in this area. Ann Dent and Alison Stewart have researched and written extensively on family grief, and this book is an extremely useful and comprehensive tool for all health professionals, as well as for students undertaking further postgraduate study.
