Book Description

Voices of Bereavement presents counselors with specific, sometimes unusual bereavement situations and their subsequent treatment.

Joan Beder blends theoretical content with suggestions for intervention, helping the reader appreciate how theory informs practice. In addition, a section on counselor struggles focuses on what feelings were provoked in the counselor during each case and how these feelings were managed.
