Gentle, realistic and compassionate guidance, to help those who are confronted with the loss of a child. With understanding and wisdom, Robert J. Marx and Susan Davidson explore the journey we embark on after the ultimate loss-the death of a child.

Drawing on the stories of the many people they have counseled, and their own experiences, the authors share the challenges of this unique passage through grief. "Like all great books, this one should be read many times. Marx and Davidson are experience practitioners, compassionate scholars, and master teachers who powerfully convey wisdom, empathy, and understanding on every page." Roger P.

Following a life shattering experience, a child enters upon a confusing emotional journey that can be likened to a prism of many colors of dark feelings like sadness and fear, but also warm feelings of love and courage. The way they deal with these feelings has a lasting impact on their life as they grow. The Colors of Grief explores strategies for supporting a grieving child to ensure a healthy growth into adulthood. Drawing on the latest research in neurology and psychology, Janis Di Ciacco illustrates the child's grieving process using a model of development that employs `key stages'. These range from preverbal infancy (0-2 years) through to early adulthood (about 25 years). She shows how a child's progress through these stages can be impaired by an early encounter with loss, which can contribute to cognitive, emotional and social difficulties. Drawing connections between bereavement, attachment issues and social dysfunction, the author suggests easy-to-use activities for intervention at each key stage, including infant massage, aromatherapy and storytelling. This is a revealing and accessible book for both parents and professionals working with, or caring for, bereaved infants, children or young adults.
