I consider the book Grief Counseling and Grief Therapy by William Worden to be the best single primer for anyone who is working with grieving people, one that every professional and semi-professional should own. It provides a comprehensive structure of tasks of grieving, but also clearly delineates the difference between walking with others through an uncomplicated grief journey and recognizing the skills necessary to skillfully and ethically support someone dealing with more complex issues.
