Mourning and Health Publication date : October 1, 1997

Should mourners be medically treated ? How can we treat post-mortum depression ? Can mourning be a philosophical experience ? If you have lost a loved one, this book will help you make sense of all of your questions: what can I do to ease my suffering ? When will I stop crying ? Will I regain my appetite for life ? For doctors, more specific answers are given : how to inform the patient of their fatal condition, how to accompany a patient who is dying and how to help console his family, how to bear the loss of a patient you have cared for.

Marie-Frédérique Bacqué is a psychologist and heads the association Vivre son deuil.
