The meaning & consequences of loss vary depending on the particular phase of life cycle development the family is negotiating at the time of the loss. Keeping this in mind, the authors discuss loss from the perspective of the timing of loss in the family life cycle & loss at different family life cycle stages. The latter topic includes discussion on things such as loss between families, parental loss, loss in families with young children & loss in families with adolescents.
