Synopsis:

Shattered Lives covers different forms of unexpected death, including suicide, road death, disaster and homicide. It describes the investigations that follow such deaths and how this affects grieving families.

Illustrated throughout by case studies, it looks at how the grieving process is affected in circumstances where the body has been extensively injured, where there is no body to grieve over, or where grieving has to be carried out under the full glare of the media spotlight. It also looks at different ways in which bereaved families are able to deal with tragedy and rebuild their lives.

Intended for professionals working in the human services, including police and other emergency services, this invaluable book provides:

  • clear and concise information on what to do and say in difficult circumstances
  • evidence-based information on how to deal with complex issues
  • strategies to deal with the multiple effects of sudden and unexpected death.
