Understanding Prolonged Grief Disorder

Edited by Kenneth J. Doka and Amy S. Tucci
Foreword by Mary-Frances O'Connor

Hospice Foundation of America’s newest book, Understanding Prolonged Grief Disorder, offers nuanced perspectives by some of today’s leading bereavement researchers and clinicians. Topics include:
  • a historical overview of the conceptualization of prolonged grief disorder (PGD);
  • the research that supports assessment and diagnosis; and
  • effective therapeutic interventions.

The book also offers critiques of the diagnosis and examines how its inclusion in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed., text rev.) (DSM-5-TR) has the potential to support some grievers and disenfranchise others. 

The book is a companion to the upcoming Living with Grief program, Diagnosis: Prolonged Grief Disorder. Program registrants receive a 15% discount on companion book orders. To learn more and register click here.
