Summary
'Letting Go' holds a central place within the pastoral literature for carers of the dying or bereaved. Since publication of the first edition, research and new multi-professional approaches to care require more than ever that those in ministry develop a good grasp of current understanding and models of grief, while retaining their own identity as the 'holy person' within a secular setting. As well as outlining the latest research and current thinking about grief and bereavement, this new edition covers specific developments such as the role of the hospice, advance directives, near death experiences, multi-cultural issues, palliative care, post-trauma stress and alternative funerals.
