Product description


′I thoroughly recommend this book for practitioners. Linda Machin is a clear, well structured and well argued writer. The book is laid out in a very accessible way with bullet points, tables and diagrams. The aim of the book is to present the foundations for her theoretical approach to working with loss and grief, based on her practice and research. She intergrates a range of theoretical perspectives (psychodynamic approaches, attachment theory, narrative theory, Dual Process Model of grief, among others) useful to the development of this kind of work and her model to take this further′
