Grief and Traumatic Bereavement Counseling
Other Losses


The death of a parent, beloved relative or other loved one triggers grief as well. Trauma will most likely be present if the death was sudden and unexpected, the survivor witnessed the illness or decline of the loved one, participated in the care, or if the death was violent. An ICU death is always traumatic. The traumatic dimension may, however, be absent and feelings of loss and sadness may predominate.


The loss of a marriage and family - for many the foundation of life - can also trigger grief reactions.
