Studies of Grief and Bereavement $0.00
Editors: Shulamith Kreitler (Department of Psychology, Tel Aviv University, Israel) and Henya Shanun-Klein (The Thanatology Program, Continuing Education Department, Faculty of Education, Haifa University, Israel)
Book Description:
Death and Grief are inseparable constituents of our life. Nevertheless, the fear of dying and death is one of the fundamental fears of our existence. This book deals with the varied faces of grief. As such, it includes 'cutting edge' theoretical models and research in a variety of fields from the more general, such as the Staging Model - a new conceptualization of grief; the politicization of grief, Positive Psychology; post-traumatic growth; survivor's guilt; death education; rescue transplantation and psychic communication, to the more specific, such as the normalization of parental bereavement; child and adolescent traumatic grief, and the unique form of grief and bereavement that of survivors of missing persons. The diversity of the themes discussed in the different chapters serves to highlight the rich potentialities of overcoming bereavement and reinstating life and creativity where death and bereavement have touched us.
