Liz Crowe is an Advanced Clinical Social Worker, who works with families in a large paediatric ICU, helping them through grief, trauma, crisis and bereavement. In The Little Book of Loss and Grief You Can Read While You Cry Liz has taken all the research and theories on loss and grief, as well as her own extensive experience in the field, and broken this down into simple words, powerful messages and beautiful illustrations that people can return to again and again. The book could be given as a gift instead of flowers, sit on a coffee table in a GP surgery or be used by therapists, teachers or parents to help talk through the emotions and impact of loss and grief. The aim of the book is to both educate and comfort people in times of loss and grief.
Written as an adult picture book, this publication is appropriate for people of all ages and literacy levels. Parents could use it to prompt conversations with their children, or therapists could ask clients to discuss the page they feel is most relevant to them. The book has multiple purposes.
