This indispensable casebook and text presents a range of therapeutic approaches and interventions for children who have experienced loss. Illustrated are ways to help preschoolers through adolescents cope with different forms of bereavement, including death in the family, school, or community. Solidly grounded in developmental psychology, the volume both elucidates the principles that guide interventions and offers detailed descriptions of the helping process. In-depth case material is presented in a handy two-column format that provides clinicians and students not only with the content of the sessions, but also with the practitioner's accompanying thoughts and rationale for intervention.
