This new edition of When Parents Die will speak to bereaved children of all ages in a very accessible style. Rebecca Abrams draws on both her personal and professional understanding of parental loss to provide the reader with a compassionate and insightful exploration of the experience of losing a parent.

When Parents Die has already established itself as an indispensable aid both to the bereaved seeking some understanding of their loss and to the many professionals who work with them. This new edition takes into account new research and theories and considers in more depth:

*the continuing importance of the dead parent in ones life
*the critical role played by the surviving parent
*the experiences of younger children
*the impact of divorce and adoption.

Retaining its clear, direct and sympathetic style, this text will continue to appeal to the bereaved, their friends and family, counsellors, social workers, doctors, nurses and teachers.

Synopsis:

First published in 1992, this second edition of "When Parents Die" is aimed at readers of all ages. Rebecca Abrams draws not only on her own evolving understanding of parental loss but also on the experiences of young children, teenagers or adults who have suffered the loss of a parent. This edition considers in more depth the continuing importance of the dead parent in one's life; the critical role played by the surviving parent; the experiences of younger children, and the impact of divorce and adoption. Drawing on research undertaken on bereavement especially in the area of "grief work", the book should appeal to the bereaved, their friends and family as well as to counsellors, social workers, doctors and teachers.
