"This book reminds us of the unique nature of the end of life and that one size does not fit all. It reminds us also of the highly complex, individual nature of grief." - Cruse Bereavement Care "This new book offers a revised and expanded look at instrumental and intuitive grieving, and it makes for engaging, thought-provoking reading. Doka and Martin's book represents a significant advance in thinking about bereavement, grief, and mourning. It offers that rare gift: a powerful conceptual framework for organizing one's whole thinking about doing bereavement research and counseling the bereaved. The ideas of intuitive and instrumental grieving offer conceptual scaffolding both researchers and practitioners can understand and use to communicate with one another. This book contains possibilities for collaboration between researchers and practitioners to bridge the gap that separates them; even more important, it offers possibilities of working together as equals on projects of interest to both." - Death Studies, [35], 2011
