"Compassion-Based Approaches in Loss and Grief is a needed book that addresses the aspects of loss and grief that are often expected but not always intentionally explored. Readers with any range of experience in thanatology will benefit from integrating this book into their professional work and personal healing process with loss. The content is applicable across several disciplines, including counseling, nursing, social work, medicine, and psychology." Jillian M. Blueford, clinical assistant professor for the Department of Counseling Psychology at the University of Denver, Colorado, in OMEGAJournal of Death and Dying 87(3) "Death, dying and grief are inescapable experiences, yet we can often fall into the trap of avoiding and denying that these experiences will actually happen to us. The recent worldwide pandemic has thrust upon us the nature of our vulnerability and the intense grief that is experienced when we lose those we love. There is no way to cure grief, but experiencing grief and dying in a landscape of compassion can be healing and transformative. In this book, Darcy Harris and Andy Ho bring together the sharpest minds in the world of compassion science and examine how a compassionate focus can be applied to grief, death, and dying. This is simply a must read for all clinicians wanting to improve their compassionate understanding and practice." James N. Kirby, PhD, senior lecturer, codirector, The Compassionate Mind Research Group, School of Psychology, The University of Queensland "A valuable book for those who bear witness to grief and as well for those traveling in the landscape of grief." Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD, founder and abbot, Upaya Zen Center "One of the only things that binds together all of the billions of people on this planet is that we will all experience grief and loss at various stages of our life. In this important and timely book, internationally renowned researchers and clinicians outline the central role that compassion has in working with grief and loss. Covering a comprehensive range of topics, this book provides essential reading for all of us, and in particular, anyone working with these painful experiences." Chris Irons, PhD, DClinPsy, clinical psychologist and director, Balanced Minds Compassion-Focused Psychological Services and Resources "As medicine becomes more technology focused, with ever increasing emphasis on biological aspects of healthcare delivery, what is often lost is recognition of the human side of medicine. Now more than ever, patients and their familiesespecially those who are facing loss and griefcrave approaches that recognize personhood and the need for compassion. Drs. Harris and Ho have assembled an impressive, international group of leading clinicians and researchers in the theory and practice of compassion-informed care. As the world continues to grapple with the tragedy of COVID-19, the timing for a book focused on compassion could not be better." Harvey Max Chochinov, OC, OM, MD, PhD, FRCPC, FRSC, distinguished professor of psychiatry, University of Manitoba, and senior scientist, CancerCare Manitoba Research Institute "Compassion is the wellspring we draw upon when confronted with suffering: it is the invisible thread that connects us to our fellow beings. This thoughtfully conceived and brilliantly executed volume fully explores what it means to bring compassion to the encounters we have with other peopleclients, inhabitants of our community and our worldand to the relationship we have with ourselves. Compassion-Based Approaches in Loss and Grief is an immensely practical book that reflects the contributors commitment to inspiring compassionate action at every level of human interaction, from therapeutic relationships to community organizations to political structures, with abundant illustrations of how these goals can be advanced.
