I believe that grief has many manifestations, thus, it is individualized to the patient, family member, friend, and situation. I agree that the grieving process may be similar in some ways, nevertheless, it can be manifested differently. In my personal experience, due to my mother’s terminal illness and progressive deterioration, anticipatory grief was experienced by everyone. My mother was a very active person, strong in her faith, she loved to go to church, and cook for the family, something that she was not able to do that Thanksgiving or Christmas; her loss of independence greatly affected her and everyone else.
According to Daily Chart, “Over 5.8 million people die under the age of 18 every year in the whole world; 25% of those deaths are suicide, 30% are traffic accidents, 10% of them are violence, and 35% of them are other accidents” (Patton 1). The five stages of grief can be very hard to go through, that is why there are so many “under aged” deaths throughout the world. These relate to The Outsiders because greasers go through the stages of grief throughout the book. The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
Crisis Intervention: Dealing with a Death of a Loved One Most people have experienced loss in their life. Studies have shown as many as 5-15% of bereaved people seem to develop severe long-term reactions to their loss. (Horowitz, M.J., Siegel, B., Holen, A., Bonanno, G.A., Milbrath, C., & Stinson, C.H). One of the most traumatic is a death of a loved one. Coping with the loss is extremely challenging and a very distressing point in life.
Loosing someone you love can cause very profound feelings leading towards a grief process. One of the stages of grief is denial, which can cause someone to not enjoy life and experience many wonderful things like love. Anger is another example, it makes a person be angry for a very long time and make it hard to move on. The final example of the grief is acceptance and can produce a lack of social interaction. In the Piano lesson Berniece shows the stages of grief by staying angry at Boy Willie, denying Avery's marriage proposal, and by not wanting to have contact with the piano.
In his book, Grief Counseling and Grief Therapy, Dr. William Worden outlines four tasks of mourning that one must accomplish in order to “adapt to the loss” (Worden, 39); “to accept the reality of the loss… to process the pain of grief…to adjust to a world without the deceased... [and] to find an enduring connection with the deceased in the midst of embarking on a new life” (Worden, 39-50). When children are exposed to death at a young age, it is difficult for them to grasp a mature understanding of death and they often lack the ability to express and verbally process their emotions (Thomas-Adams, 12). Bibliotherapy is the practice of using literature for the therapeutic treatment of mental or psychological disorders. Bibliotherapy can be
ASSESSMENT As a family my husband and I fulfilled all our duties according to our cultural expectations and traditions prior to returning back to Sydney; however the conflicting demands of raising a young family, lack of connectedness, and the perceived difference in the intensity of loss experienced added stress to our relationship. This stress was further compounded when my husband lost his job. As this life event ensued a couple of months after my father-in-law’s death, we decided not to share this news with our family back home placing restrictions on our support network.

Pet Bereavement The relationship between people and animals has changed in the last 50 years. Animals who live with people have traditionally been called ‘pets’.

Published in 1962, Robert Hayden’s poem “Those Winter Sundays”, expresses an adult realizing how a father's love can be more than hugs & kisses and his regret for not showing more affection towards his father as a child. Love comes in many different ways, one is the unbreakable bond between a father and son. A love as such is discussed in this poem, it is the entire theme of the poem itself. The poem is formatted as a sonnet, it contains fourteen lines and does not rhyme.
Not only is the treatment time consuming but running to the doctor can take a lot of time. Usually, when I go to a doctor, ninety minutes out of my day is involved between waiting to see the doctor, the actual visit, and follow up. Doctor visits are not usually the only visit required; nursing visits, therapy, and lab tests also take several hours a day. Again, a lot of wasted time.
