A clear and concise guide to working with grief and loss
appropriate text to support core module reading
An excellent book, using some up to date systems to record the grief process (AAG scale), and looking at loss of various kinds.
Written compassionately and authoritatively.
This is an excellent, moving text which will help to both introduce and support the student and qualified nurse in this field of practice. It is sensitively written and easy to use.
Very helpful in allowing students to understand the complexities of human behaviour, and to see loss and grief as a core part of living.
a good text
