Edited By Neil Thompson


'The author's comprehensive approach will appeal to a wide range of healthcare professionals, including nurses and lecturers, and practitioners working or undertaking specialist and social care.
I found this book exciting and thought provoking. It would be an excellent resource for individuals as well as university libraries responsible for inter-professional healthcare training and education.' - Barbara Borwell MA, RGN, Dip Couns, Nursing Standard
'It is rare to find such a valuable resource as this book that considers gender, race and class and losses resulting from 'social disenfranchisements' such as divorce, adoption or being fostered. The book re-enfranchises those experiencing loss and grief. It is highly recommended for all practitioners in health and social care, not just those working in palliative care or bereavement services.' - Jonathan Parker, University of Hull
'..adds new perspectives that will expand our understanding.' - Resources Hotline, The World Pastoral Care Centre
