Gender & Sexuality Studies
Incorporating the voices of professionals counselling survivors of abuse, and those of the survivors themselves, this book provides the reader with a theoretical understanding of people who have endured abuse, as well as practical approaches to counselling them. The effects of different types of abuse and abusive environments are explored.
In The Social Symbolism of Grief and Mourning Roger Grainger focuses on the role of funerals in promoting the personal and social adjustment of the bereaved. Tying together folklore with funeral practices, the author has created a work that examines the anthropological, psychological and superstitious aspects of our relationship to death and dying.
Positive Strategies for Renewal and Growth
This book explores the territory of loss in childhood using the words of children who have found themselves bereft of hope. As well as covering the short and long term implications that arise when loss occurs, it provides positive approaches that enable children not only to cope but to grow through their experiences.
The period of childhood which falls between the early years and adolescence is a comparatively neglected area of study. In its combination of viewpoints, set against a background of related research, law, policy and practice, this book offers a rich and challenging study of an important period of the child's development.
Horizons of Hope
Based on his own practical experience of working with individuals who have suffered childhood sexual abuse, Dave Simon has created a counselling programme that is tailored for working with adult or adolescent survivors. The programme provides a path of recovery for the survivors that is as safe and easy as possible for them to follow.
