Grief, Loss and Traumatic Bereavement
In life, grief is a normal process when we encounter the loss of a loved one, especially when the relationship is significantly close. This grieving process can be intense and last for an extended period of time.
There is no proper way to grieve and everyone responds to personal losses differently. And grief is not necessarily contained to the death of a loved one alone. Sometimes we grieve over the loss of an important job, a home, a significant friendship, losing functionality due to poor health, or this can also commonly occur with the end of romantic relationships.
The grieving process is never easy and one can feel isolated, abandoned, guilty, ashamed, confused and angry. The person encountering the loss might also have a lot of questions and at times may feel that the pain could become too much to bear; others may feel that they lack closure.
Bereavement can become traumatic when the death itself is too sudden, shocking and distressing. This can cause long-term psychological challenges.
