The death of someone we care about, a close friend or family member, is an event we all have to face sometime. Learning to survive the feelings of sadness and loss is a process that is normal and usually time-limited. The process involves both emotional and behavioral reactions. It takes us through the initial response of shock and sadness through acceptance and understanding and eventually to the rebuilding of our lives.

There are many ways in which people learn to adjust to the death of someone they care about. Hopefully, the items below will give you some ideas about how you may be able to help yourself through the grieving process.
