Guidebook on Helping Persons with Mental Retardation Mourn Paperback / softback

Part of the Death, Value and Meaning Series series

Description

The book contributes to an awareness of the significance of loss in the life experience of persons with mental retardation.

Experiencing loss may be a very powerful vulnerability in their mental or psychological life, and dealing with this loss is a basic element in psychological health.

There has been an enormous hole in the death and dying literature and in the mental retardation literature on the mourning behavior and needs of persons with mental retardation.

This book fills that hole, and lays a foundation for grief support services, establishes standards of practice and care, and is an educational primer about the loss and mourning needs of persons with mental retardation.
