The Grieving Process

There is much clinical wisdom in what Dr. Bodenheimer has presented. It is crucial to understand that grieving and mourning is a natural process that we must move through. Getting stuck alone the way causes unnecessary suffering. This understanding creates useful expectations for dealing with this all important aspect of life.

Coping with Grief

I feel like thinking of grief in stages or phases helps people to label their feelings and gives them a sense of control / understanding about what to potentially expect. I appreciate that the author highlighted that there is no timeline and that grief isn't limited to death. Everyone experiences grief in different ways and each person needs support systems for to cope well in life transitions.
