Young People, Bereavement and Loss: Disruptive Transitions?

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.
