Living with Grief: After Sudden Loss
After Sudden Loss
by Edited by Kenneth J. Doka, Ph.D.

This book examines the subject of abrupt, unexpected death and its effects on and implication for the survivors left behind. Topics covered include: heart attack and stroke, vehicular crashes, suicide, violent death, disaster, the military and complicated grief, and treatment methods for traumatic loss.

Full Description:   

This book was produced as a companion to the Hospice Foundation of America's third annual teleconference. The Foundation, begun in 1982, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing leadership in the development of hospice and its philosophy of care for terminally ill people. The Foundation conducts educational programs related to hospice, sponsors research on ethical questions as well as the economics of health care at the end-of-life, and serves as a philanthropic presence within the national hospice community.

Close to 90 percent of hospice's in the United States reach beyond their own patients and families to become, in a variety of ways, a community resource on grief and bereavement. That is part of the hospice mission and an important service which the Hospice Foundation of America encourages and tried to support.
