Approximately one-fourth of all college students suffer the loss of a family member or friend during their college career, yet the prevalence of bereavement on the college campus is largely unrecognized-sometimes by even the bereaved students themselves. This volume is the first to address the ways in which bereavement may affect the college student, particularly during the first year following a loss, and provides guidance for mental health professionals on how best to treat this underserved population. Authored by an internationally known expert on bereavement, the book culls the wisdom gained from 25 years of research. It considers the major models of bereavement, grief, and mourning as they apply to the student, and includes student narratives, treatment exercises and activities, and issues regarding self-disclosure. This volume will be a vital tool in helping college students to grieve in a constructive manner while avoiding potential obstacles to a successful college career.
