This study deals with the psychology of mourning & the psychological reaction of the bereaved survivors. Rejection of death in western cultures discourages healthy emotional expression of loss; therefore, psychological help may have to be offered to enable survivors to carry out the necessary work of mourning. The author presents case studies of reactive depression, attempted suicide & other varied symtoms illustrating how therapeutic efforts were directed toward resolution of mourning.
