Supporting People with Intellectual Disabilities Experiencing Loss and Bereavement: Theory and Compassionate Practice

Authors: Sue Read (editor)

ISBN: 978-1-84905-369-3


This book combines theory with practical advice to help those who help people with intellectual disabilities through the grieving process. Here is an excerpt from the publisher's description:

"...This authoritative edited book looks at diverse experiences of loss across this population whether it be loss due to transition, the loss or death of others, or facing their own impending death. The book begins by offering theoretical perspectives on loss and compassion, bereavement, disenfranchised grief, spirituality, and psychological support. It then addresses contemporary practice issues in health and social care contexts and explores loss for specific communities with ID including children, individuals with autism, those in forensic environments, and those at the end of life.

Identifying inherent challenges that arise when supporting individuals with ID experiencing loss, and providing evidence and case studies to support best practice approaches, this book will be valuable reading for students, academics and professionals in the fields of disability, health and social care."
