This is the first book to focus specifically on complicated mourning, often referred to as pathological, unresolved, or abnormal grief. It provides caregivers with practical therapeutic strategies and specific interventions that are necessary when traditional grief counseling is insufficient. The goal is to turn 'complicated' into 'uncomplicated' mourning. Rando examines the unique issues in bereavement situations that put mourners at high risk for complicated mourning. She synthesizes the literature and integrates it with specific treatment approaches.
