Description

Developmental changes in children's acquisition of death concepts and in their emotional reactions are reviewed. Moderating variables that may affect the nature of grieving processes after parental or sibling death are discussed, including circumstances of the loss, prior experience with death, and the child's cognitive functioning. Pragmatic issues (such as when and how to inform children of parental or sibling death) regarding bereavement and mourning in children with acquired brain injuries are reviewed and illustrated by means of case studies. Special challenges to rehabilitation professionals who must deal with these issues (including the concurrent treatment of secondary losses, cognitive deficits, and organic personality changes) are discussed.
