Strong, Winifred; Honer, Mary
This paper focuses on the stress and struggles faced by survivors, following physical and/or emotional loss.

The paper includes several objectives, and lists of information follow each objective. It provides counselors with information that will assist them in recognizing symptomatic behaviors common to bereavement and loss, such as the stages of grief and the colors of grief. Counselors will have the opportunity to discuss some common myths about grief. They will also review intervention strategies and activities when counseling those experiencing grief and loss. Strategies are listed for helping those coping with grief. It includes suggested activities for grief groups.
