Bereavement narratives : continuing bonds in the twenty-first century

Author: Christine Valentine
Publisher: London ; New York : Routledge, 2008.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Bereavement is often treated as a psychological condition of the individual, with both healthy and pathological forms. However, this empirically-grounded study argues that this is not always the best or only way to help the bereaved, and instead emphasizes normality and social and cultural diversity in grieving.
