Grief in Two Guises: "Mourning and Melancholia" Revisited
Green, Viviane
Journal of Child Psychotherapy, v39 n1 p76-89 2013
This paper is a re-reading of Freud's classic paper. The themes of mourning and melancholia are viewed in relation to children and adolescents with illustrations from case histories. Mourning is interpreted in a broader sense: not only as grief (both expectable and traumatic) but as a response to the developmental process itself as phases of childhood are shed and an emerging newer identity is assumed. The author argues that Freud's paper left the way open to make a number of further distinctions of the processes involved within melancholia. (Contains 3 notes.)
