Grief Counseling Resource Guide: A field Manual

This manual has been developed as a guide for those who encounter individuals reacting to trauma related grief reactions in the course of their outreach work. It is hoped that this document will be helpful forboth licensed mental health practitioners with limited experience workingwith individuals who are grieving as well as for paraprofessionals and outreach workers. Whenever a person is encountered who is experiencing severe reactions or complicating conditions for which the worker feels unqualified toaddress, consultation with an appropriate mental health professional and anappropriate referral for more formal services should be made.
