  • Details

Written from the interdisciplinary perspectives of expert sociologists, psychologists, educators, social workers, nurses, and anthropologists, this book offers a breadth and depth of insight into the complex nature of adolescent bereavement. Nurses, counselors, social workers, and educators will find this book to be an invaluable resource when they try to understand and help adolescents coping with death-related issues.

Over a decade has passed since the publication of Balk and Corr's groundbreaking Handbook of Adolescent Death and Bereavement. This new book, Adolescent Encounters With Death, Bereavement, and Coping, analyzes the challenges faced by adolescents coping with death, dying, and bereavement, and examines the new, unique circumstances and advances that have transpired over the last decade. These include:

* Grief and coping with HIV/AIDS
* Adolescents, humor, and death
* Technology and the Internet: coping with loss in the digital world
* Bereavement over the deaths of celebrities

The book also explores critical, imaginative conceptual frameworks and models that have emerged on the scene, including:

* The dual process model for understanding loss
* Ideas about assumptive worlds
* Debates about the benefit and harm of grief counseling
* New research on recovery and resilience following bereavement
