Complicated Grief: Cultural Considerations When Working with Loss in Hispanic and Latino Students and Their Families   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Research suggests that when a person is exposed to the loss of a loved one in the context of violent circumstances including suicide, homicide or an accident, the most common grief response is known as complicated grief. Complicated grief is a prolonged form of grief that could interfere with normal functioning. The grieving process in children is different from adults (Darman, 2011). Children need assistance and guidance to cope with the emotions related to the loss of a loved one (Lenhardt & McCourt, 2000). If left untreated, complicated grief can persist over time."
