From the Publisher:
A revised and updated edition, first time in paperback. This ground-breaking book is written to help those who counsel families struggling through a family member's terminal illness and death. A family member's sickness and death can cause a tremendous upheavel within the family. This extensively revised and updated book offers the most current techniques for helping families cope with turmoil caused by the loss of a family member. In no-nonsense, down-to-earth terms the author shows how professionals and volunteers can work effectively with families by developing a sensitivity to the many factors that influence how families cope with issues of illness and loss, such as intergenerational patterns, ethnicity, gender, stage of life cycle, and past and current stressors. He offers useful guidelines for helping families define and carry-out the necessary actions they need to take in order to adjust to the illness and death of a loved one. This therapeutic approach represents more than a method for simply dealing with a family crisis -- it is also an opportunity for family members to come to a new level of self-awareness, change, and growth.A down-to-earth and highly practical guide, this is the first book to explain and illustrate the relationship between family systems, illness, and loss.
