This article analyzes anger as a phase in the bereavement process. Anger is usually very difficult for survivors to recognize, accept & express. At the beginning of survivors’ group meetings, anger is repressed & denied. By the end of the meetings, survivors should be able to recognize & vent their anger toward the victim, supported by both the group atmosphere & the therapist. If survivors do not go through this phase, the bereavement process should not be considered complete. (9 refs.)
