Johnson reviews Webb’s book, Helping Bereaved Children. This handbook is aimed at child therapists or those who help children cope with death. Much attention is given to phase-specific technical considerations for treating grieving children. Technical aspects of group child therapy are richly detailed. Numerous case vignettes are given, e.g. a 2 year old clutching his dying mother after the murder-suicide of his parents. Individual factors (e.g. cognitive development) are detailed for each case.
