INTENDED AUDIENCE Caregivers, especially those dealing with persons experiencing loss: counselors, social workers, pastors, rabbis, health care practitioners, funeral directors, and so forth.From the Inside Flap:
IN PRAISE OF "This is a wonderful volume-wise and spiritual. Hansen speaks of both the importance of attachment in our lives and what happens when those attachments are broken. He reminds us that even in grief and loss there is the promise, the potential, of transformation. Responding to Loss offers insights, tools, and techniques both for those experiencing loss and for professionals. It is a gift to the field." —Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, Professor, The College of New Rochelle Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America
"Responding to Loss represents a creative utilization of contemporary attachment theory in conjunction with theological resources. It is a significant contribution not only for those who seek to deal with personal loss but also for those who assist others in grieving loss." —Lallene J. Rector, PhD, Psychoanalyst, Chicago
"In Responding to Loss, Hansen offers a clear and intelligent vision of normal bereavement, one richly informed by attachment theory, and elaborated in terms of "new look" models of mourning. Blending coherent ideas with concrete illustrations, this volume reaches beyond the anguish of loss to reflect systematically on its emotional and intellectual processing, and ultimately to affirm the prospect of spiritual transformation. Hansen has written a book for the thinking professional, whatever his or her discipline, who seeks grounding principles in the shifting terrain of grief." —Robert A. Neimeyer, PhD, Dunavant University Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Memphis
"This book a helpful guide for leaders of congregations who are committed to healing. It integrates the latest research with a sound theological perspective in a way that will deepen the pastoral care of the Christian church." —James N. Poling, PhD, Professor of Pastoral Theology, Care, and Counseling, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
"It has been a long time since my profession has been given a resource as important as Responding to Loss. The theoretical and practical understanding of attachments is filled with insights that can be readily applied to those we serve and those with whom we work." —Michael R. St. Pierre, President, Wilson-St. Pierre Funeral Service, Past President, Selected Independent Funeral Homes
"In Responding to Loss an experienced master teacher helps the reader to engage with the experience of loss and to understand the ways by which we cope with this basic human reality. The book is well grounded in theory with generous reference to other basic writings in the field, yet it also cuts to the nerve of the matter by citing real life situations of significant loss. Whether the book is used as a text in a formal course or continuing education, or whether it is read simply to gain greater understanding on how to cope with loss, the reader will be rewarded with a discussion that engages heart, soul, and mind in equal measure. Anyone seeking to deal with loss will find this book an invaluable guide." —Neal F. Fisher, President Emeritus and Senior Scholar in Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Evanston, Illinois
"Responding to Loss distills wisdom gained from Dr. Hansen's career of distinguished academic research and teaching as well as personal experience, especially the tragic death of a daughter described in a poignant postscript. It brings fresh depth to Viktor Frankl's thesis that a central key to finding meaning in life is choosing one's attitude in response to unavoidable suffering and loss. This volume will be an invaluable resource to a wide variety of professionals helping those in their care deal with losses both small and great." —John R. Wimmer, PhD, Program Director, Religion, Lilly Endowment Inc., Indianapolis, Indiana
