is for those who grieve themselves and are emotionally supporting others (a partner, children, siblings, parent/s or a friend)through their bereavement.
Very few of us understand that in many cases grieving starts before the physical death occurs. Often we hold that feeling inside, pretending that we are fine, trying to be strong for everyone’s sake. And yet this struggle to be strong prevents us from connecting the people we love.
Some of us find the whole experience utterly devastating. We every time someone mentions death or the person who is dying/died. Immersed in our confusing feelings of sorrow, love, regret, longing, guilt, loneliness, anger we have no available space or capability to connect to the feelings of the people we love.

Working through grief and adapting to loss is important for children. Studies have shown that children and adolescents that have unresolved grief are at a higher risk for developing depression and anxiety as adults. It’s important that palliative care and hospice practitioners, as well as other family members, recognize the needs of grieving children and help them access the resources they need.Owens D. Recognizing the Needs of Bereaved Children in Palliative Care. Journal of Hospice &Palliative Nursing. 2008; 10:1.
Research has shown that contrary to the expectation that the tragedy of a child'a death might bind a family together, many bereaved parents report increased marital discord. (...)husband and wife grieve in different - in fact, diametrically opposed - fashions; husband and wife are often unable to understand and support each other, and the mourning of each spouse actively interferes with the mourning of the other, causing friction, alienation, and eventual separation.
