9781446248881: Working with Loss and Grief: A Theoretical and Practical Approach

This updated second edition of Working with Loss and Grief provides a model for practitioners working with those who are grieving a significant life loss. Making clear connections between theory and practice, the ′Range of Response to Loss′ model provides a theoretical ′compass′ for recognising the wide variability in reaction to loss and the ′Adult Attitude to Grief′ scale is a tool for ′mapping′ individual grief and its change over time, providing an individual grief profile. Together these offer a framework for practitioners to:

-listen to stories of grief told by clients

-identify common patterns in grief

-recognize individual difference in grief response

-make assessments

-prompt therapeutic dialogue

-guide therapeutic focus and

-evaluate outcomes.

This edition includes: a new chapter on ′The RRL Model and a Pluralistic Approach to Counselling′ ; two new case studies; additional content on vulnerability; new grief assessment tools and systems, and the latest research.

Dr Linda Machin is Honorary Research Fellow at Keele University, having been a Lecturer in Social Work and Counselling at Keele. She established a counselling service for the bereaved in North Staffordshire and continues to work as a researcher and freelance trainer.

Dr Linda Machin is a Visiting Research Fellow of Keele University, having been a Lecturer in Social Work and Counselling at Keele. She established a counselling service for the bereaved in North Staffordshire and continues to work as a researcher, a hospice counsellor and a freelance trainer.

Review:

Linda Machin writes with clarity and relevance about the challenges of well informed decision making and effective practice in the field of bereavement support.  She offers a wide ranging synthesis of theoretical and therapeutic developments and a strong research base.  Practical case studies facilitate the wider use of the Range of Response to Loss model.  This book will be of benefit to all with an interest in understanding loss and grief and improving the quality of bereavement support. (Dame Barbara Monroe)

This is a practical and valuable overview for working with grief. The concepts and approach allow for the breadth of human experience rather than following a formulaic linear pathway, and have the flexibility to be applied to a wide range of clients. (Jo Griffin, Chartered Counselling Psychologist)
