A sensitive and insightful new book on helping children cope with bereavement


A Grief Unobserved
By Maggie Kindred

There is a wonderful book by C S Lewis in which he describes the process of coming to terms with his bereavement - the 'grief observed' which most adults will experience at some time in their lives… this book is about the grief not observed, that of very young children. It is for parents, carers, and professionals who work with them.

Very often the remaining parent, close relatives and well-meaning friends, are understandably so involved with their own grief that they try to sweep the child's problem under the carpet. They can regard apparent lack of reaction in the child with relief, rather than as a danger signal.

“This book is essentially practical - it is meant to make 'therapy' an everyday concept, so avoids jargon and theoretical language where possible.” says Author Maggie Kindred.
