" Childrenís Encounters with Death, Bereavement, and Coping is a very well researched document and well written by an impressive cadre of scholars….The book is a must read for marriage and family therapists, clergy, and pediatric care givers whose work intersects the lives of children and the social and environmental systems in which they live."— NCFR’s Certified Family Life Educators Newsletter

“[F]or the resource that offers one of the best bibliographies and guides to resources, for the book that contains theory, definitions, treatment modalities, helps, warnings, integration of people and programs, culural diversity…when it comes to all of this, we turn to Charles A. Corr and David E. Balk, editors of Children’s Encounters with Death, Bereavement and Coping. It is a book you must have on your shelf, but don’t let it sit there for too long without making good use of it.” —Illness, Crisis and Loss

“Current, filled with sound theory, wise clinical acumen, sound research, terrific resources, and a multicultural perspective, this book will be a necessary resource for clinicians and educators….”— Kenneth J. Doka, PhD

Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America

“Corr and Balkís book will help adults find many ways to lead bereaved children to a hopeful belief in their future, despite their considerable losses. This book is a real contribution to the growing literature in this field.”

—Nancy Boyd Webb, DSW, LICSW, RPT-S

Distinguished Professor of Social Work Emerita, Fordham University

Children struggling with death-related issues require care and competent assistance from the adults around them. This book serves as a guide for care providers, including counselors, social workers, nurses, educators, clergy, and parents who seek to understand and help children as they attempt to cope with loss.

This book comprehensively discusses death and grieving within the context of the physical, emotional, social, behavioral, spiritual, and cognitive changes that children experience while coping with death. The chapters also explore new critical, imaginative conceptual models and interventions, including expressive arts therapy, resilience-based approaches, new psychotherapeutic approaches, and more.

Key features:

  • Presents guidelines for assisting children coping with the loss of parents, siblings, friends, or pets
  • Discusses ethical issues in counseling bereaved and seriously ill children
  • Provides guidelines for helping children manage their emerging awareness and understanding of death
  • Emphasizes research-based, culturally sensitive, and global implications as well as current insights in thanatology
