Overcoming Loss

by Julia Sorenson


A4 Paperback
Price: £19.99
Publisher:Jessica Kingsley Publishers from Gardners Books
Published:15 June 2008
Julia Sorensen’s book, Overcomimg Loss, is a “hands-on” work, being a photocopiable resource full of activities that use the power of play and creative arts to give the grieving child the language to identify subtle feelings such as shame, despair and jealousy. The ideas contained in this text are rooted in deep and extensive psychological research. The activities here, encourage social and emotional learning through play, art and story-telling, and provide a set of resources for use in either a school or other carer situations whilst giving total reassurance that, if you are following Sorensen’s advice, you can only be doing good.
