This is a practical guide for all those involved in teaching and learning about bereavement, loss and managing change. It takes the reader through the theory and the process, and integrates the information into practice. The book provides a framework for teaching and understanding specific conflicts and their effects on health, and describes the underpinning theories and current research. The text considers work, school, family and social environments, and looks at ways of teaching, learning, organising and training in loss, bereavement and change. Themes and issues of experiencing loss are considered, including bullying, violence, sexual crime and anger, along with ways of resolving these conflicts. Methods of dealing with death of a child, suicide, trauma and unemployment are also highlighted. The final section looks at coping mechanisms, such as assertiveness, grieving and post-traumatic stress syndrome.
