Extensive research has provided firm evidence upon which we can base our understanding of bereavement and its psychiatric consequences.

In this module we shall consider:

  • the nature and neurophysiology of grief,
  • the influence of bereavement on physical and mental health,
  • study findings on the course of grief and the factors that determine good and bad outcomes,
  • the major theoretical models that explain these findings,
  • the interventions that have made it possible to prevent some psychiatric problems and treat others.
