My Inspiration

Everyone grieves and sometimes people seek help. What is taught about grief in therapy programs, in medical training? Courses in thanatology are generally not offered in these programs, leaving professionals without guidance. This book was written to educate practitioners and to encourage them to develop their own ways to help their clients. We need to know how to talk with people about their grief and how to help. We need to develop a toolkit so that our response to bereaved people will be sensitive, compassionate and effective.
