Abstract


  • Bereavement – the loss of a loved one through death

    - is a normal, common human experience. Most

    people adapt to their loss over time. For a few,

    however, grief can become extreme and persistent,

    leading to mental and physical ill health. Researchers

    have given this type of grief a variety of labels; here

    we refer to it as prolonged grief.
