Bereavement, children, and families

(p.221) Chapter 14 Bereavement, children, and families
Narrative and Stories in Health Care

Patsy Way

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a description of therapeutic work that was part of the Candle Project at St. Christopher's Hospice. This is a hospice that provides bereavement care to children. A number of narratives are presented in this chapter, which leads to the conclusion that therapeutic work with narrative can lead to the allowance of alternative possibilities for help with real lives, possibilities which were formerly considered to be too hard to consider.

Keywords:   therapeutic work, Candle Project, St. Christopher's Hospice, narratives, alternative possibilities
