Brady Co.], p1972Description: 1 cassette. 2-track. mono. guide.Subject(s): Attitude to Death -- audiocassettes | Grief -- audiocassettesSummary: The purpose of this lecture presentation is to discuss the needs of the mourners and some of the ways these needs have been met. In this presentation mourning is described as a process by which we return to a sense of wholeness. The needs of the mourner are then identified and discussed as follows: a need to accept the reality of the situation, a need for a new focus in life, a need for memories of the deceased, a need to express authentic feelings, a need to gain some insight into the strange and unexpected feelings the individual is experiencing, a need for support, a need for a context of meaning, and a need to re-orient his life without the deceased. The program then focuses on the mourning process and discusses how this process can meet these needs. The way in which the funeral emphasizes the reality of the death, and the loss, and provides support of those most involved in sharing this loss is discussed. Two situations are described to compare and contrast the type of realistic and bizarre behavior seen during the mourning process.
