  • Slide 4 - A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis “There is something new to be chronicled every day. Grief is like a long valley, a winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape. As I’ve already noted, not every bend does. Sometimes the surprise is the opposite one; you are presented with exactly the same sort of country you thought you had left behind miles ago. That is when you wonder whether the valley isn’t a circular trench. But it isn’t. There are partial recurrences, but the sequence doesn’t repeat” (Lewis, 1961:47) 4

  • Slide 8 - The grief process Bereavement can occur when there is a significant loss to that person The significance of the loss is individual to each person The ways in which people deal with their feelings surrounding loss will also be different 8
  • Slide 9 - Factors that can influence bereavement and loss The timing of the loss The occurrence of several losses or of loss with other major lifecycle changes A history of traumatic loss and unresolved mourning The nature of the death The significance and function of the person 9
  • Slide 10 - Current theories of grief and bereavement The following theories about bereavement highlight the way that each person’s experience is unique. There is no fixed theory that fits exactly but they do serve to help our understanding about the process. 10
  • Slide 11 - Freud, S. The notion that a satisfactory outcome in loss or bereavement depends upon emotional expression of grief Sigmund Freud 11
  • Slide 12 - Worden (2003) The process of adjustment to loss commonly known as ‘grief work’ using grief counselling and grief therapy (Worden, 2003) 12
  • Slide 13 - The four tasks of grieving To accept the reality of the loss To work through the pain of grief To adjust to the environment without the deceased To emotionally relocate the deceased and move on with life Worden, 1991 13
  • Slide 14 - Theories of counselling intervention through creation of a safe base in which to explore feelings and concerns. Attachment theory which promotes security (Holmes, 1993); Person centred approach (Rogers, 1961, 1980), (Ainsworth, 1978) 14
  • Slide 15 - Attachment Theory Anxious/ Ambivalent attachment Secure attachment Avoidant attachment Overwhelmed loss response and anxious Balanced/resilient loss response Controlled loss response 15
  • Slide 16 - Grief theories cont. The characteristics of grief, particularly as they relate to bereavement are founded in the work of Bowlby (1980); Kubler Ross (1970) and Parkes (1996) collectively known as stage and phase models of grief 16
  • Slide 17 - Stage and phase models Anger Denial Despair Guilt Hopelessness Bargaining Acceptance Mourning 17
  • Slide 18 - Sugarman (2001) Dealing with death and bereavement often obscures the reality that multiple losses are experienced across the life cycle e.g. those that come with developmental change Some of these ‘little losses’ are rehearsals for more profound encounters with loss and provide a strengthening of emotional and cognitive capacities 18
  • Slide 19 - Sugarman (2001) cont./… Coping demands are fully tested when relationships or health are damaged or disintegrate and where deeply held aspirations are thwarted or unexpected or traumatic death occurs 19
  • Slide 20 - Stroebe and Schut (1999) Grief as a two dimensional process: Loss orientation – dealing with the distress of grief Restoration orientation – focus on diversion from grief and attention to ongoing life demands Successful movement between these two grief modes is necessary to adapt to loss 20
  • Slide 21 - Lazarus and Folkman (1984) Where internal resources and external sources of support are inadequate for the meeting of loss, vulnerability will result Recognising loss and the vulnerability it may produce is central to the process of helping a person overcome bereavement and loss 21
  • Slide 22 - Reflection: How might an adult’s experience differ from a child’s experience? 22 Make links to the people you are supporting
  • Slide 23 - Children and their grief experience Factors to consider The age of the child Their experience of loss The child’s coping strategies The presence and support of family, friends, carers The child’s mental health and well-being The child’s understanding about what has occurred 23
  • Slide 24 - The experience of bereavement Bereavement causes a great intensity and variety of emotions which may be felt for many months, if not years, after the death or loss of connection with someone close. In children sometimes these feelings do not manifest until later adulthood. 24
