The Grieving process

life-and-death 

The four tasks for living and dying

William Worden has described ‘the four tasks of mourning’ facing a bereaved person:

1. To accept the reality of the loss.

2. To experience the pain of grief.

3. To adjust to the new situation (life without the deceased).

4. To withdraw emotional energy from the loss and to put it into a new relationship or situation.
