Praise for the Fourth Edition:
“In the fields of death education, research and counseling/psychology, surely Bill Worden is a giant…ALL of us, personally and professionally, are indebted to [him]. From his work we may be just a bit wiser, a bit healthier, a bit more competent, and a lot more in touch with meaning for the sake of all who mourn.”
–Illness, Crisis, & Loss
“[If] you knew Worden’s work and his writings previously, you’ll find an enhanced book with a much broader and challenging perspective than his previous editions. If you are not familiar with Bill Worden, then it is time to begin.”
–Ben Wolfe, MEd, LICSW, Fellow in Thanatology, Program Manager/Grief Counselor, St. Mary’s Medical Center’s Grief Support Center Duluth, MN
