This manual deals with bereaved families in hospital and clinic settings and provides practical knowledge based on current theory and on clinical experience obtained at several major medical centers. Differential diagnosis between clinical depression and grief reaction is discussed and practical guidelines are given for interventions with survivors including grief situations involving loss of a spouse, of a child and of a parent. Both anticipated losses following terminal illnesses such as cancer, AIDS and chronic illnesses, and unanticipated losses following accidents and suicides are examined.
