Description

This project examines grief and loss as a universal human experience. Although experiences, reactions, living environments, and cultures may be different, there are ways in which individuals can foster resiliency and instill hope in their lives after loss. When a person is suffering from intense or complicated grief, intervention strategies can help an individual move forward in a positive direction. This project reviews the literature to identify specific intervention strategies that stem from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and strengths based prospective which can be used to foster resilience. The project presents strategies which can be implemented by both formal and informal supports throughout the community, such as employers, schools, churches, and healthcare centers, including formal psychotherapy, to help promote the health of individuals and foster resiliency after loss.
