Abstract

Losing a loved one can be a traumatic and devastating experience that places the bereaved at a heightened risk of psychological suffering and impairments in functioning. Demographics of the bereaved, relationship to the deceased, circumstances of death and culture are factors affecting the grief experience. The dual process model (DPM) is a model of coping with loss as opposed to one aimed at explaining the broad range of manifestations associated with bereavement. In this chapter, principles of intervention are derived from the DPM to aid in the understanding of grief, and techniques are drawn from existential therapy, person-centred therapy and postmodern approaches, to inform a culturally sensitive way of working with an elderly client.
