A Child Dies: A Portrait of Family Grief


1 in stock (can be backordered)


A child’s death is a devastating experience whatever the cause, the age of the child, or whether it is expected or unexpected. Anyone who has experienced this tragedy themselves–as a friend, or family member or caregiver–knows that it is a daunting task to deal with loss of this magnitude. This highly acclaimed and consistently bestselling book was written to help grieving family members and concerned caregivers learn to cope with the death of a child. While there are no easy answers to how to deal with overwhelming loss of this sort, this book offers understanding and support with explicit guidelines and helping techniques.

Beautifully illustrated with works of art and poems that are able to express in an extremely powerful way what words sometimes cannot, this caring, warm and thoughtful book will be enormously helpful to all those who must confront the tragedy of a child s death, including victims and mental health professionals alike.
