Additional Resources -- Bibliography

Grief in a Family Context, HPER F460/F560

Many of these resources were used, in addition to those in the course anthology, as background for the Unit lectures. Others have been recommended to me as containing useful information for scholars and/or clinicians. Most of these are scholarly writings and, as such, would be of limited direct help to individuals coping with their own grief. If you choose to recommend any of these to a bereaved person, be sure to preview it first. If you would like to recommend additions to this list, contact Dr. Gilbert at
