Family-based grief counselling.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The family constitutes the key social group involved with mourning. A model of family response patterns to bereavement is presented that contrasts the adaptive family's response with maladaptive patterns that are avoidant, distorted, inflexible or that amplify grief. Guidelines in working with these families are discussed.
