    In this comprehensive handbook, Charles Corr and David Balk improve our understanding of the challenges faced by adolescents when coping with death, dying, and bereavement. The volume is organized into three parts. Part I addresses specific issues involved in confrontations with death. Part II focuses on the role of bereavement. Part III explains specific therapeutic interventions for caregivers. The authors introduce us to adolescence as a special time in the human life cycle, a period quite separate from childhood and adulthood. They establish normative adolescents, and explain developmental tasks that are typical of early, middle, and late adolescence.

    The author's survey revealed that a significant number of college students grapple with the loss of a loved one. Directed at both college students and campus professionals, Balk (health and nutrition sciences, thanatology, Brooklyn College, City U. of New York) presents research and observations on the grieving process in the contexts of the campus environment; theoretical models, particularly Leighton's sociocultural framework for coping with stress; the cause of death; and ways that campuses can help students recover. Chapters include case studies, exercises applying some of the models discussed, college policies on student bereavement, and further reading.
