This comprehensive resource provides developmentally appropriate interventions for counseling children and adolescents who have experienced a wide range of grief and loss, including secondary and intangible losses such as moving or divorce. The book synthesizes current research and best-practice approaches for counseling youth. It provides a method for assessing individual needs and offers guidelines for selecting appropriate counseling strategies.

Through numerous case examples, the authors describe youths' cognitive, emotional, and behavioral responses to loss. They address important issues, such as myths about grief and loss in youth; cultural, religious, and family considerations; trust and safety concerns; tragic and stigmatizing losses; and the life-long impact of losses experienced in childhood and adolescence. An essential resource for counselors, social workers, and psychologists in schools and other settings. Also highly recommended as a supplementary college text.
