This study assesses whether nonbereaved people can accurately imagine the experience of recent bereavement, following different causes of death. The authors found that there were few significant differences between those who were bereaved & those who were imagining. The authors conclude that people can imagine most bereavement experiences, except the long-term social isolation of suicidally bereaved people.
