Healing the Bereaved Child: Grief Gardening, Growth Through Grief and Other Touchstones for Caregivers
Wolfelt A D
By comparing grief counselling to gardening, the author frees caregivers of the traditional medical model of bereavement care, which implies that grief is an illness that must be cured. He suggests that caregivers embrace a more holistic view of the grief process, & explains the ways bereaved children can not only heal, but grow through grief. The book contains chapter after chapter of practical caregiving guidelines.
