The Magical Thoughts of Grieving Children : Treating Children with Complicated Mourning and Advice for Parents Hardback
Part of the Death, Value and Meaning Series series
This book is designed for clinicians, educators, clergy, and nurses - anyone who is assisting children who have experienced the death of a loved one.
This work offers a unique framework for helping children heal from the wounds created by the life process of death, a framework that has its defining basis in children's magical thought.
Magical thought is motivated by the desire of a child with incomplete cognitive equipment to understand his world.
Magical thought helps children develop inaccurate conclusions about many aspects of death and their own personal grief, often suggesting that they or someone else is responsible for the loss.
