Living through Bereavement New Edition Publication date : October 1, 1995

“The living and the dead of cities and towns are separated and people die today in the colourless world of palliative care in hospitals. Sometimes far from loved ones. How do the carers themselves deal with the bereavement they face when someone they have looked after for so long dies ? And how do we mourn, when the rituals surrounding bereavement have disappeared, when pain is denied or stifled by medication, when it is often seen as an illness itself ? A fine inquiry, both profound and energetic, by a psychologist who has worked in the field with Doctors of the World, and has interviewed numerous carers.”
