About this book
There is a wonderful book by C S Lewis in which he describes the process of
coming to terms with his bereavement - the 'grief observed' which most
adults will experience at some time in their lives… this book is about the
grief not observed, that of very young children.
It is for parents, carers, and professionals who work with them: there are
many books about child development, bereavement, and therapy, but not many
about loss of a parent where a young child is involved. Very often the
remaining parent, close relatives and well-meaning friends, are
understandably so involved with their own grief that they try to sweep the
child's problem under the carpet. They can regard apparent lack of reaction
in the child with relief, rather than as a danger signal.
Being based on the personal experience of someone well-known to the author,
it brings to life both the young child's disrupted and an adult experience
of therapy. It shows how, with competent professional help if necessary,
parents and carers can learn how to cope not only with their own grief, but
also discover effective ways of helping.
The book is essentially practical - it is meant to make 'therapy' an
everyday concept, so avoids jargon and theoretical language where possible.
