The dual process model is a taxonomy to describe how people come to terms or cope with the loss of a partner, however, generalised to include other losses in recent years (Stroebe & Schut, 1999). Of primary importance is gaining an understanding of what constitutes effective coping with bereavement, as some people come to terms with loss while avoiding any health consequences while others adopt more damaging strategies (Parkes, 1996; Stroebe, Stroebe, & Hansson, 2007). This model is not a stage or phase model, rather a “waxing and wanning” over time with ongoing flexibility (Stroebe & Schut, 1999, pg. 213). It proposes that adaptive
A key aim of CBT in treating complicated grief is to target dysfunctional thoughts and behaviours by focusing on reducing feelings of distress and suffering to enable the bereaved to move towards acceptance of the loss and revision of their future (Boelen, 2008). To accomplish this aim, negative cognitions need to be identified and changed, and avoidance behaviours need to be confronted (Boelen, de Keijser, van den Hout, & van den Bout, 2007). Similarly to CGT, imaginal revisiting is one technique CBT uses to confront the reality of the loss as well as to reduce anxious avoidance (Boelen, 2008). In addition, to address negative cognitions, cognitive restructuring is used in CBT to identify, challenge and alter unhelpful thoughts (Boelen, 2008). Socratic questioning, is a strategy of cognitive restructuring where the utility and validity of negative cognitions are addressed.

Secondary appraisal is a perception regarding our ability to cope with an event that follows primary appraisal. He needs to decide if he can cope or not. If he decides he cannot cope he will experience too much stress which is not good for him. If he decides to cope he can do so in different ways. He could choose to deal with problem focused coping (a strategy in which we tackle life’s challenges head-on) or emotion-focused coping—a strategy in which we try to place a positive spin on our feelings or predicaments and engage in behaviors to reduce painful memories (Pearson
¬¬¬¬¬The Wars Essay The concept of resilience is often described as being able to recover from difficult experiences or pasts, where one’s resilience could be impacted by drastic changes that occur in their lives. It is something that guides one’s decisions and often defines their morals and what individuals perceive to be right or wrong; depending on the situation they are encountering. Resilience is highly dependent on the thought of empathy, where the resilience of people who have experienced empathy will be different from others who haven’t. How individuals deal with these differences determines one’s level of empathy and also impacts their resilience.
His mother, father and sister don’t work at all. “The father was a wealthy man… he hadn’t worked in five years… in those five years, he had put on a lot of fat and became very slow moving… And was Gregor's old mother supposed to collect money now, a victim of asthma… and was his sister, at seventeen still a child whom could hardly begrudge the way she lived until now” (Kafka 30).

The primary antecedents’ variable involves the stimuli frame which refers to the form, composition, and structure of the stimuli that the person perceives. The stimuli frame has three components that work together to decrease uncertainty: symptom pattern, event familiarity, and event congruence. These three components provide the stimuli that are structured by the patient into a cognitive schema, which creates less uncertainty. Cognitive schema refers to the patient’s subjective interpretation of illness, treatment or hospitalization (Mishel). Symptom pattern is the degree to which symptoms present with a pattern and based on this pattern the meaning of the symptoms can be determined.
