Written by a key founder in the field of loss and trauma, this is the first book to bring together the twin fields of loss and trauma. It: * reviews theory and research on a sampling of loss and trauma phenomena that include losses due to the death of close others, divorce and dissolution, losses due to disease processes and injuries, losses due to unemployment and homelessness, war and violence, and the Holocaust and genocide * discusses relevant therapy approaches and emphasizes a story-telling approach to coping with major loss * contains scores of stories of persons confronting stress and of the courage displayed by so many in the face of profound loss in their personal lives * includes consideration of cross-cultural, international perspectives on loss, exploring both universal and individual characteristics of different groups
