This text gathers together the most efficient and effective tools to ease the pain of grief and promote the natural process of bereavement. The purpose of the text is fourfold. Firstly, to provide a theoretical bridge between two fields by providing conceptual terminology, such as defining both "normal" versus "dysfunctional bereavement" and the meaning and range of death-related PTSD. Secondly, the volume confirms and illustrates the identical patterns of reactions between those who survive the death of a loved one and other traumatic events. Next, the text applies the most useful theoretical models to the bereavement experience, and in turn acknowledeges the utility of generalizing bereavement models to other traumatic experiences. The volume's final purpose is to identify and apply the most useful and effective approaches in traumatology literature to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of traumatic stressors other than death.
