Review:

...a helpful and informative book for anyone who wishes to support grieving adolescents. Containing twenty-four chapters, this substantial publication provides several excellent chapters in Part I (Adolescence and Loss) that address the various ways today s adolescents experience loss such as when a sibling or parent dies or when death is a result of suicide, homicide or war. Also included are the grief experiences of chronic illness, end-of-life care and the developmental processes of an adolescent becoming an adult. In Part II (Supporting Grieving Adolescents), there are comprehensive descriptions of unique approaches to help grieving adolescents heal, including chapters about the use of bibliotherapy, support groups, grief camps and expressive arts. A significant contribution of this book is the incorporation of relevant and practical intervention strategies, supported by research, which detail not just the why but also the how of those interventions. Combining sound theory with useful strategies and innovative ideas, this text guides parents and professionals to help adolescents manage overwhelming feelings of sadness, worry, anger and fear that often accompany grief and loss. The strategies target the important skill of emotional regulation that many adolescents, not just those who experience stress, need to master. With the ability to regulate intense emotions adolescents will feel able to cope better with their adverse life experiences. --Caelan Kuban, Psy.D. -- OMEGA - Journal of Death and Dying
