This book is geared toward a professional audience & is divided into 2 sections: the 1st introduces vignettes that are powerfully moving &, the 2nd provides Òclinical interventions.Ó Dr. Rynearson’s goal was to create a model that brings coherence to an otherwise chaotic experience & offer restorative opportunities to people whose lives have been shattered by the aftermath of violent dying. This book may fit well as a textbook for grief & loss courses even though it is not an introductory primer. (LC) (4 refs)
