Family focused grief therapy provides a scholarly overview of the research and theoretical basis of our current understanding of the impact of bereavement on the family. This work is highly relevant to many areas of healthcare and is particularly innovative in applying preventive approaches involving careful clinical screening and assessment of a family’s functioning and coping. Kissane and Bloch’s work identifying high-risk patterns of family interaction is an important and an internationally recognised contribution to this field.
