Chapter 12: Adolescents and Homicide

Tashel Bordere describes another all too common form of adolescent grief, grief that is a reaction to homicide. Bordere reminds us that in African American communities, homicide is the leading cause of death for young men. Bordere offers an exceptional review, noting the factors that complicate such a loss while offering sage suggestions for clincians. Noting the scarcity of literature connection grief to violence and violent death, especially among adolescents, Bordere draws from contemporary examples and personal accounts of young people grieving a death by homicide. Bordere's advice for clinicians reminds us that one of the major costs of homicide is that is challenges both the sense of safety and the sense of fairness, so both have to be addressed in counseling.
