Bereavement defined; time that is spent adjusting to the loss.
There is no quick fix, right/wrong way to grieve and certainly no magic formula.
Everyone grieves and deals with bereavement differently.
The main stance that any counsellor should adopt, when guiding a client through the grieving process, is that grief and bereavement is not something one should “get over” or “move on from”. Above all, any gender, religious or cultural stereotypes must be removed. Your therapist or counsellor should, unequivocally, treat every client as a blank-canvass – no exceptions.
