Abstract

Bereavement is one of the most frequent and severe stress situations in human life. Studies on the work of mourning are reviewed and discussed. Bereavement produces reactive depressions very similar to those after other severe losses. Cultural influences are of importance. Results of the first trials on prevention of ill-health following bereavement are reviewed.
