This video gives an excellent insight into the process of bereavement.
It is recognised by leading organisations such as Mind and
the Samaritans as being one of the best
resources available to help professional people and those involved
in the care, counseling and support of the bereaved understand the
various stages of grieving.
The video is constructed in four stages with real people who
have been bereaved sharing openly and honestly their experiences. At the
end of each section a professional Cruse counselor
sums up the various facets of grieving and, in the later stages, how the
contributors are finding a new way of living after their loss.

The simple format of the video allows you to select
and edit sections of the tape for training purposes, including group
discussion and dialogue, so that those involved professionally can
have a much deeper and better understanding of the complexities involved
in dealing with those living in the shadow of grief.
