Dr. Janice Seward answered

Specializes in Clinical Psychology

Unresolved grief: Losing a child is one of the hardest losses to endure. Treatment must include a screening to rule out depression subsequent to the unresolved grief. The client should be helped to understand the normal processes of grief, including denial, anger, bargaining, before getting to the difficult but achievable state of acceptance. Treatment may include group work with others who share loss of a child.
