Siblings hold the key to our history.  Yet the death of an adult sibling is one of the most disenfranchised losses we can experience.  Dr. T.J. Wray, who wrote Surviving the Death of a Sibling: Living Through Grief When an Adult Brother or Sister Dies, gives us important information ~ from research as well as her own experience ~ on what surviving siblings feel, what they need and how they can be helped.  Sarah Davis, like Dr. Wray, lost a sibling and used her experience to survey other bereaved siblings and their experiences are cataloged in a touching paper she wrote for a Psychology class.  And Tom Golden helps us understand how sibling loss affects young boys.

Music therapy has be found to be a powerful tool in supporting individuals through grief.  Ronna Kaplan,  author, researcher, speaker and music therapist, brings her expertise and research to our aid in this issue of Advances in Bereavement.  Tony Falzano, an author, songwriter and professor who holds workshops for grievers, tells us how to help by “Composing Grief”.  And, although in a perfect world we would want grievers to have the support of a music therapist, “When Talking is Not Enough” gives us simple suggestions even the tone-deaf can employ.

The evidence is clear; most grievers do just fine without professional help.  The exception is those who experience trauma associated with the loss.  Sherry Russell has provided us an excellent feature article on "Traumatic Stress and Grief". Fortunately, studies have also provided us with many ways to support the traumatized griever from the elegant (EMDR) to the somewhat frivolous (playing Tetrus!)  This issue of Advances in Bereavement explores the full slate of possibilities.
