Overview

As a counselling psychologist, Elaine Kasket has had many encounters with clients struggling with grief. Everyone has their own way of internally processing the loss of a loved one.

Kasket became interested in how today's increased web-surfing practices have impacted how we as a society explore and express our grief.

After researching the very modern phenomenon of online mourning, Kasket uses this book to explore it in broader psychiatric and psychological terms.
