dc.description.abstractTraumatic Bereavement: Helping the Survivors represents an original contribution to the problem of coping with an unexpected and violent death due to all 'external' causes (suicide, homicide, natural disaster, road accident, work-related accident). Complemented by chapters dealing with definitional aspects of bereavement and historical developments in theories, the book also offers a critical review of existing techniques to approach the 'work of mourning'. However, the main characteristic of this volume is to offer a step by step examination of what happens to people affected by such losses, being them child, youth or adults. This means that the book also covers reactions from different environments, e.g. school or work settings, but also family and social networks. Another important feature of the volume is describing self-help groups and the management of groups of bereaved persons. The book also examines the consequences in therapists of the loss of a patient. The book has been extremely well received in Italy; it has obtained many important reviews and quotations in television broadcasting, and -more importantly- has been endorsed by several important NGOs dealing with the sequelae of road accidents and suicide.en_US
