Grey, a counselor and psychotherapist, looks at how loss and bereavement are experienced by people with learning disabilities (defined here as low IQ, retardation, and autism), especially those in residential care who experience loss of friends due to chronic illness and conditions. The book outlines stages of loss, and describes methods, including talk therapy techniques, for assessing and resolving distress and lowering risk of self-harm and disruptive behaviors. It also covers how to work with family members, and looks at the counselor's role when the loved one lost is a parent or other primary care giver. The book includes a list of organizations and web sites. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
