Book Details

From Dr. Corinne Masur, an award-winning clinical psychologist specializing in grief and mourning, comes a necessary and impactful guide to understanding children’s grief from the inside and to guiding children through loss, from the death of a parent and other family members, to the loss of friends, pets, and even the family home. Dr. Masur describes how to understand, help and guide children at each age and stage of development and uses her own childhood experience with loss through empathetic yet clinically informed advice in this important guide. When Dr. Masur was fourteen years old, her father died. Like most children and teens facing loss, Masur didn’t know how to handle her grief, and she was never encouraged to acknowledge or share what she was feeling with her family, teachers, or friends. Her experience of shock and emotional paralysis around her loss is what led her to become an expert in childhood grief in order to help grieving children and to help others to support the children in their lives who have experienced loss. As a psychologist and child psychoanalyst, Dr. Masur has helped many children recognize and express their feelings after loss. In How Children Grieve, Masur shares her expertise with caregivers of all kinds, giving them the tools they need to help a child or teenager to mourn, to move forward, and to make meaning of terrible loss.
