Book Description

The primary purpose of ""Men Coping With Grief"" is to bring together, in a single publication, a very diverse group of authors who have considerable knowledge to share about the ways men grieve and how their bereavement experiences impact various aspects of their lives. The adjustment process is multidimensional in that grief can affect nearly every aspect of a person's life including emotions, identity, social interactions and relationships, spirituality, intimacy and sexuality, work productivity, health, and even mortality.The chapter authors have expertise in history, philosophy, journalism, poetry, sociology, psychology, anthropology, social work, nursing, health education, gerontology, religious studies and business. They represent professionals in academics, research, clinical service, business, the clergy, and many more. Each author offers his or her insights, opinions, personal experiences and supporting evidence to explain what we should know about the ways men grieve, why they grieve in a particular way and how this knowledge might be best applied to assist them.
