A Study of the Grief Process for Health Professionals

 

Grief is a normal and natural response to loss. It is not a problem to be solved, but rather a way of coping. By definition, grief is the range of emotions that an individual experiences following the loss of a significant person, thing, or event. It is a healing process that is unique to each person and occurs with any type of loss: the death of a loved one, a divorce, losing a job, an unwanted medical diagnosis, or a chronic, debilitating condition. Understanding the emotions and changes that accompany grief can be an important step in supporting others and yourself! This module is text-based.
