Description

Against the background of a society that tends to underrate the grief experienced by parents whose infants have died prematurely, the model "SORROWFUL" is presented here with the intent to highlight the significance of the death of a newborn for the affected family. It is a supportive tool in counseling for parents grieving the (impending) loss of an infant(s) during peri- or neonatal life and may be implemented within the parental psychosocial support setting beginning with the initial diagnosis until well after the death of the child. The model intentionally allows flexibility for cultural and individual adaptation, for the accommodation to the varying needs of the affected parents, as well as to available local resources.
