Authoritative guidance, written in a wonderfully simple and straightforward way, on helping the bereaved cope after the traumatic death of a loved one

Unless forced by circumstances, people in modern societies go to great lengths to deny death, to the extent that even death of a loved one from natural causes tends to catch us unprepared and unable to cope with its consequences. Death as the result of a sudden, catastrophic event (traffic accident, suicide, a natural disaster, etc.) can have even more extreme effects, sometimes striking survivors so violently and painfully that it leaves an indelible mark.

This book speaks about the consequences of such traumatic deaths in a wonderfully simple and straightforward way. The authors describe, step by step, what happens to people after the sudden death of a family member or close friend, the difficulties they face in coping, and how professionals and volunteers can help. With their wide experience, both personally and as internationally renowned authorities, they have written a book for professionals and volunteers who deal with bereavement in language that is accessible to all, so it will also help those who have suffered a traumatic loss themselves to understand what to expect and how to get help.

Praise for the Book:

“This book provides a wonderful synthesis of information on traumatic losses. It offers useful perspectives on normative and non-normative reactions to non-normative deaths. There’s little doubt that it will be a helpful resource to clinicians, survivors, and scholars who care for those bereaved from traumatic losses.”
Holly Prigerson, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Director, Center for Psychosocial Epidemiology and Outcomes Research, Boston, MA

“In this lucid and compelling volume, a group of very accomplished bereavement researchers provides a most illuminating overview of how the bereaved are affected by traumatic losses and how they adapt after the deaths of loved ones. Caregivers and the bereaved alike will find this book to be an indispensable tool for navigating the less well charted waters of traumatic loss and healing.”
William Feigelman, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Nassau Community College, Garden City, NY; Coauthor of Devastating Losses: How Parents Cope With the Death of a Child to Suicide or Drugs
