Bereavement Definitions

Posted Feb 20 2009 7:22pm
    Much of the following material can be easily accessed on the web, but I'm so fascinated with the terminology of bereavement that I've decided to post them, here. Clear explanations are available at the links listed in this post. However, I found clear explanations that I prefer at an alternate site, as well. I'll attach the appropriate links to the words.
  1. Grief:  Reaction to a loss.
  2. Mourning:  Process of adapting to a loss, distinguished by action (either internal or external) and often influenced by societal and cultural dictates.
  3. Bereavement:  The state of having experienced a loss, which includes the loss event, grief and mourning.
