Relearning the World

Thomas Attig, PhD

  • Over 10,000 copies sold since its original publication in 1996

New to this Edition:

  • A new preface which reflects on the changes and developments in grief research over the last 15 years.
  • An extensive new introduction which defends the thinking presented in the First Edition and places it in contemporary discussions and controversies about complicated bereavement.
  • Discussion of the development of a new grief diagnosis in the DSM, loss of the assumptive world, anticipatory mourning, meaning-making, continuing bonds, the effectiveness of grief counseling, narrative ethics, and disenfranchised grief.
