The second edition of Helping Teens Work Through Grief provides a more complete and updated manual for facilitators of teen grief groups.
• It includes additional background information about developmental aspects of teens, the process of grief, aspects of trauma and its effects on teens, the value of a group, determining the group-appropriateness of particular teens, and parental involvement. The many details involved with beginning a group - publicity, interviews, registration, structure, closure, evaluation, and follow-up - are listed.
'This book provides a sensitive, expanded framework for helping teens work through their grief… It is thoroughly written, orderly, and detailed in presentation and includes an exhaustive resource section which will be welcomed by the worker wishing to enhance their understanding of the grief process.' - Alison Hahn Johnson, Social Work with Groups
