Human beings are grieving animals. ‘Consolation’, or an attempt to assuage grief, is an age-old response to loss which has various expressions in different cultural contexts. Over the past century, consolation has dropped off the West’s cultural radar. The contributions to this volume highlight this neglect of consolation in popular and academic discourses and explore the usefulness of the concept of consolation for analysing spatio-temporal constellations. Consolationscapes in the Face of Loss brings together scholars from geography, philosophy, history, anthropology and religious studies. The chapters use spatial and conceptual mappings of grief and consolation to analyse a range of spaces and phenomena around grief, bereavement and remembrance, comfort and resilience, including battlefield memorials, crematoria, graveyards and natural burial sites in Europe. Authors shift the discussion beyond the Global North by including responses to traumatic grief in post-conflict African societies, as well as Australian Aboriginal traditions of ritual consolation. The book focuses on the relationship between space/place and consolation. In so doing, it offers a new lens for research on death, grief and bereavement. It offers new insights for students and researchers interrogating contemporary bereavement, as well as those interested in meaning-making, emerging socio-cultural practices and their role in personal and collective resilience.

“This 5th edition is an important achievement; it is a symbol of commitment to the field of palliative nursing, where we have been and where we are going.” - Betty Rolling Ferrell, PhD, MA, FAAN, FPCN, CHPN From the Foreword The aging population has only grown since the first edition of this comprehensive and seminal publication nearly 20 years ago. Based on the need to humanize rather than medicalize the illness experience for patients, this text delves into palliative care beyond the specific diseases affecting the patient. Instead, content focuses on the whole person and family. Palliative patients struggle with chronic, debilitating, and painful conditions, and grapple with the fact that life as they knew it has already passed away. Families and friends reciprocally suffer, not knowing how to help and therefore become the secondary victims of the disease. This is not the challenge of a lone nurse, or a single physician, therapist, or social worker. Rather, palliative and hospice care requires the expertise and unique roles of an interprofessional team to help the patient and family strengthen their resilience, continue to find meaning and purpose in life, and cure what can be cured. Palliative Care Nursing, Fifth Edition, delivers advanced empirical, aesthetic, ethical and personal knowledge. This new edition brings an increased focus on outcomes, benchmarking progress, and goals of care. It expounds upon the importance of the cross-disciplinary collaboration introduced in the previous edition. Every chapter in Sections I, II, and III includes content written by a non-nursing member of the interprofessional team. Based on best-evidence and clinical practice guidelines, this text presents comprehensive, targeted interventions responsive to the needs of palliative and hospice patients and family. Each chapter contains compassionate, timely, appropriate, and cost-effective care for diverse populations across the illness trajectory. Key Features The expanded new edition offers current, comprehensive, one-stop source of highly-relevant clinical information on palliative care Life-span approach: age-appropriate nursing considerations (e.g. geriatric, pediatric and family) Includes disease-specific and symptom-specific nursing management chapters Promotes a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to palliative care Offers important legal, ethical and cultural considerations related to death and dying Case Studies with Case Study Conclusion in each clinical chapter New to The Fifth Edition: An expanded chapter on Palliative Care incorporates most up to date scope and standards, information on Basic and Advanced HPNA certification, self-reflection and self-care for nurses.

Working with widowers can be one of the most challenging parts of a therapist’s career. Despite the need for better research and professional guidance, therapists have often been left alone to confront a group struggling with high rates of suicide, mortality, physical health problems, and depression. Counseling Widowers builds from the latest developments in grief research and men’s studies to bridge the gap between counseling practice and the needs of bereaved men. In these pages, therapists will find tools for adjusting their clinical strategies to work more effectively with these men. Through a more empathic understanding of widowers, therapists can help them build from their strengths as they face the loss of their partner.

Eine Anhaltende Trauerstörung kann in der Folge des Verlustes einer Bezugsperson auftreten. Sie ist durch intensive Sehnsucht nach dem Verstorbenen und Trennungsschmerz sowie durch kognitive, emotionale und verhaltensbezogene Symptome gekennzeichnet, wie etwa die Unfähigkeit, den Verlust zu akzeptieren sowie Ärger oder Bitterkeit über den Verlust. Der Band beschreibt anwenderorientiert die Behandlung der Anhaltenden Trauerstörung. Neben einer Übersicht zum Stand der aktuellen Forschung und zur Diagnostik beinhaltet das Buch zwei Manuale – ein stationäres Gruppentherapieprogramm und ein ambulantes Einzeltherapiemanual. Beide Manuale wurden erfolgreich evaluiert und zeigten sich hochwirksam in der Behandlung der Anhaltenden Trauerstörung. In den neun Sitzungen des Gruppenprogrammes werden verschiedene trauerbezogene Themen strukturiert bearbeitet. Die Gruppenintervention wird mit Expositionen in sensu in der Einzeltherapie kombiniert. Zusätzlich können kunsttherapeutische Elemente eingebaut werden. Die für 25 Sitzungen konzipierte Einzeltherapie kann sehr flexibel an die individuellen Bedürfnisse des Patienten angepasst werden. Das kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutische Vorgehen wird mit systemischen und gestalttherapeutischen Interventionen ergänzt. In beiden Settingformen geht es zunächst um den Beziehungsaufbau bzw. die Gruppenkohäsion. Die zweite Phase beschäftigt sich mit der Bearbeitung von Schuldgefühlen, mit der Anpassung an die veränderten Lebensbedingungen, mit der Funktion der Trauer und mit der bei vielen Betroffenen vorhandenen Vermeidungssymptomatik. In der letzten Phase stehen dann die veränderte Beziehung zum Verstorbenen und eine Neuorientierung im Vordergrund. Die Arbeitsblätter zur Durchführung der Therapie sind auf der beiliegenden CD-ROM enthalten.
