Loss and consequent grief permeates nearly every life changing event, from death to health concerns to dislocation to relationship breakdown to betrayal to natural disaster to faith issues. Yet, while we know about particular events of loss independently, we know very little about a psychology of loss that draws many adversities together. This universal experience of loss as a concept in its own right sheds light on so much of the work we do in the care of others. This book develops a new overarching framework to understand loss and grief, taking into account both pathological and wellbeing approaches to the subject. Drawing on international and cross-disciplinary research, Judith Murray highlights nine common themes of loss, helping us to understand how it is experienced. These themes are then used to develop a practice framework for structuring assessment and intervention systematically. Throughout the book, this generic approach is highlighted through discussing its use in different loss events such as bereavement, trauma, chronic illness and with children or older people. Having been used in areas as diverse as child protection, palliative care and refugee care, the framework can be tailored to a range of needs and levels of care. Caring for people experiencing loss is an integral part of the work of helping professions, whether it is explicitly part of their work such as in counselling, or implicit as in social work, nursing, teaching, medicine and community work. This text is an important guide for anyone working in these areas.

Loss and grief are universal experiences and much has been written about both. Understanding Loss and Grief: A Guide Through Life Changing Events is a comprehensive self-help book about the various types of loss we may experience over a lifetime, and the attendant grief we feel, in all its variations, related to those losses. Nanette Burton Mongelluzzo considers the variety of ways we experience loss and grief – whether through the actual death of a loved one, including a beloved pet, or losses experienced through divorce, medical problems, natural disasters (material items) – abd examines what these experiences do to us psychologically, biologically, and emotionally. She offers understanding and the we need tools for moving through the various experiences, both big and small. Everyone is touched by loss. It begins early in our lives and continues through its various ages and stages. Through the use of real-life vignettes, and fascinating facts on loss and grief within the American cultural landscape, the author sheds light on the ways we grieve and how we can move through it and move on. She not only explains the comprehensive array of losses that can occur in a lifetime, but also helps readers garner support for different types of loss, whether it be the loss of a breast through cancer; the loss experienced through stillbirth; or the loss of a child, spouse, or entire community. She offers support, optimism, and encouragement to readers, helping them to own personal experiences, even those that involve loss and grief.

Understanding Loss to Relieve the Anguish delves into the question of whether a loss is really a loss and if it is necessary to suffer as a result or just an overemphasized reaction to what is conventionally believed to be a loss. Your author supports and writes about how profoundly effective the power of belief and feelings are in any state of mind and how one can save a lot of lifes precious time mourning in misery with the gloom-and-doom of loss by exchanging that energy for creative energy, which bypasses the gloom-and-doom state of mind and creates reason to use loss as a possible catalyst for offsetting the misery of loss and becoming more inspired to feel better. The book is about turning sorrowful feelings into creative accomplishments as the ongoing order of the day for a more meaningfully rewarding life.

The study of human reproduction has focused on reproductive ‘success’ and on the struggle to achieve this, rather than on the much more common experience of ‘failure’, or reproductive loss. Drawing on the latest research from The UK and Europe, The United States, Australia and Africa, this volume examines the experience of reproductive loss in its widest sense to include termination of pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth, perinatal and infant death, as well as - more broadly - the loss of desired normative experiences such as that associated with infertility, assisted reproduction and the medicalisation of 'high risk' pregnancy and birth. Exploring the commonalities, as well as issues of difference and diversity, Understanding Reproductive Loss presents international work from a variety of multi-disciplinary perspectives and will appeal to sociologists, anthropologists and other social scientists with interests in medicine, health, the body, death studies and gender.
