This is the first book to focus specifically on complicated mourning, often referred to as pathological, unresolved, or abnormal grief. It provides caregivers with practical therapeutic strategies and specific interventions that are necessary when traditional grief counseling is insufficient. "The goal is to turn 'complicated' into 'uncomplicated' mourning." Dr. Rando examines the unique issues in bereavement situations that put mourners at high risk for complicated mourning. She synthesizes the literature and integrates it with specific treatment approaches. --- from the publisher
Reviews:
Author Therese A. Rando provides both students and practitioners with extensive information relative to the complications of loss, grief, and mourning. Her style is methodical and compelling in maintaining the reader's interest in an increasingly demanding area of mental health needs."
-- Regina V. Rexroat, The Family Journal
"This volume reflects her expertise, her scholarship, and her ability to clarify rather than obscure. Over 700 pages of text are supplemented by an unusually extensive reference list and a thorough subject index."
-- Child & Family Behavior Therapy
"Any reader will have a greater appreciation of the complexities in the universal experience of loss, a fuller understanding of the process of grief and mourning, and an enhanced ability to make appropriate and timely referrals for further assistance in resolivng loss when it has become complicated for those involved."
-- Rebecca Fogel Downs, Journal of Case Management
