Based on 15 years of experience working with organ procurement organizations and donor families, Wrapped in Mourning addresses the heretofore unexplored subject of organ donor family trauma. This book covers the issues surrounding organ donation, including the history of organ transplantation, how organs are procured for transplantation, as well as the medical procedure itself. Each issue is explored with regards to its impact upon donor families. Ways to reduce grief, prevent problems, and increase the benefits of donating organs for the donating family are also discussed.

Review:

"Contrasting the joy of recipient families and the positive outcomes of organ donation described by the media enthralled with the wonders of medical technology, "Wrapped in Mourning: The Gift of Life and Organ Donation Family Trauma presents a seldom acknowledged aspect of transplantation. As one family member states, 'I'm talking about the darker side of organ donation. It's much more complicated than any news story can convey.'."
-Death Studies, May 2003
"Without question, this book is destined to be a classic for those involved in all aspects of the organ donation process. ... If the information in this work is comprehended, and its guidance followed, donor families will be exceptionally well-served."
-Therese A. Rando, Ph.D., BCETS, BCBT, The Institute for the Study of and Treatment of Loss, Warwick, RI
"This wonderful book provides a prespective that is not often seen -- how the donor family is affected by donation. It will be a wonderful tool in the field of organ transplantation and help professionals understand the effects, both positive and negative, on the donor family.
Jennifer Y. Ralston, MSW, Barnes-Jewish Hospital."
"As a hospital chaplain who has witnessed the miracles that can accompany an organ donation, the ill-prepared and grief driven dilemmas and approaches of family members and the generally less than adequate approaches of the professionals called on to step in, this book is a wise informer on these issues and will particularly help professionals feel more comfortable in walking with people through these discussions and also doing more advocacy in the community long before the crisis time warranting decision-making.."
-Resources Hotline, Vol. 6, No. 5
