Riveting in their emotional clarity and utterly jargon free, these 30 stories from real life penetrate how we grieve and how we can help those who grieve- whether the griever is oneself, someone we care about, or a client or patient. Lynne Dale Halamish, an internationally respected griefcounselor with more than 20 years' experience, and Doron Hermoni, a family physician, researcher, and educator, present vignettes from practice that show how death- lingering, unexpected, violent, or self-inflicted- and the loss of a relationship- to oneself or with a child, sibling, parent, mate,grandparent, or friend- give life to grief, together with the process by which each person fully encounters his or her grief. Each story is no more than two or three pages, and the authors follow each one with a short summary of its teachings and a selection of annotated recent references for thosewho wish to read more about a topic. Looked at in relief, the stories reveal a master grief counselor at work.
Doron Hermoni is Chairman, Section of Family Medicine, Technion Medical Faculty and Haifa and family physician, Clalit Health Services, Sharon Shomron District, Israel.
