Working with Loss and  Grief : A Theoretical and Practical Approach, Paperback / softback Book

Working with Loss and Grief : A Theoretical and Practical Approach Paperback / softback


This updated second edition of Working with Loss and Grief provides a model for practitioners working with those who are grieving a significant life loss.

Making clear connections between theory and practice, the 'Range of Response to Loss' model provides a theoretical 'compass' for recognising the wide variability in reaction to loss and the 'Adult Attitude to Grief' scale is a tool for 'mapping' individual grief and its change over time, providing an individual grief profile.

Together these offer a framework for practitioners to:-listen to stories of grief told by clients-identify common patterns in grief-recognize individual difference in grief response-make assessments-prompt therapeutic dialogue-guide therapeutic focus and -evaluate outcomes. This edition includes: a new chapter on 'The RRL Model and a Pluralistic Approach to Counselling' ; two new case studies; additional content on vulnerability; new grief assessment tools and systems, and the latest research. Dr Linda Machin is Honorary Research Fellow at Keele University, having been a Lecturer in Social Work and Counselling at Keele.

She established a counselling service for the bereaved in North Staffordshire and continues to work as a researcher and freelance trainer.
