Read full description of the books:
Offering aftercare to the bereaved in an organized, formal program is a relatively recent phenomenon. A variety of programs have been developed by individual professionals to meet the demands of their institutions and client populations. Over time, these programs have been modified to meet the ever-growing needs of a diverse clientele. Such programs seem to share one common element-each was developed without the advantage of having a model because there was none.
This is where When All The Friends Have Gone: A Guide For Aftercare Providers will make its mark. This volume is a collection of writings from pioneers who have created aftercare programs. The perspectives they offer are wide-from the practical how-to's in developing a program to the more personal stories that enlighten the reader on the motivation behind those who founded the programs. The chapters include information on funeral home based programs as well as those based in schools, hospitals and the military.
Regardless of the venue, the reader will find valuable ideas that can be modified for use in his/her own professional setting. Additional issues pertinent to the aftercare worker are also addressed, such as serving the needs of a multi-cultural population, appreciating the role of ritual in our lives, and knowing how to care for oneself as a professional caregiver.
Whether creating a new aftercare program or modifying an existing one, When All The Friends Have Gone: A Guide For Aftercare Providers will be an invaluable resource.
