Synopsis

This pioneering book provides guidance for those helping bereaved adults through the process of grieving loved ones who died as a result of substance use.



People bereaved in this manner require very specific support through these unique circumstances, and this book contains contributions from a range of leading experts in the field on how to help people bereaved in this way, with examples of good practice. It combines theory, research and practice in a straightforward and untechnical way, clearly describing the complex, severe nature of these bereavements and how to support bereaved people through this complex grieving process. The book also explains bereavement, substance use and how addictive substance use can affect a family, and provides comprehensive case studies that illustrate how to support and counsel.



Rooted in specialist professional experience, this is the indispensable guide for all those whose work involves supporting these bereaved people, as well as being of interest to those bereaved this way and their family, friends and colleagues who may be supporting them.

Customer Reviews

Although primarily aimed at counsellors, this book offers an easily accessible window into the subject of drug and alcohol abuse for the lay person; as well as in insight into attachment theory and depression which is relevant to everyone for general life. The whole book is logically set out, easy to understand and could be dipped into if wished. The case studies in the book offer a powerful and insightful addition. The chapter on anger, blame, guilt, love and forgiveness of the affected family were compassionately written, thought provoking and very practical. They would enable anyone to better understand and unpick the complexity of emotions experienced by family/friends whether their affected loved one was still using or had indeed died. There are many practical examples of how to offer support, whether as a counsellor or a friend. I would highly recommend this book to everyone interested in this area.
