Young People, Bereavement and Loss: Disruptive Transitions?

Paperback
This book examines what we know about young people, bereavement and loss. It includes case studies and other evidence of how young people discuss their experiences of bereavement; the theoretical history of research into bereavement and young people; the evidence of bereavement as a 'risk factor' in the lives of young people; the social and cultural contexts of bereavement, and approaches to education and intervention. It considers the implications for policy-makers and practitioners developing best procedures and practice for working with bereaved young people. This book will help those involved with working with young people - across the broad range of mainstream as well as specialist services - to respond imaginatively and rigorously to this issue in young people's lives.
