An unfortunate universal part of the human experience is the death of a loved one, whether a friend, family, or other close companion. Grieving is a multi-faceted response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone with who bond was formed. Grief has emotional physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions. While mourning a loss is part of the healing process, people sometimes experience a condition called “complicated grief” when their sadness becomes pervasive and they become preoccupied with the deceased in a way that impacts their everyday life.
