I recently posted about complicated grief, grief which a person gets stuck in for longer and/or more intense periods than is considered typical. The usual cause of complicated grief may be the loss of a loved one, but I found myself curious about the possibility that other losses could bring it on as well, and asked The Center for Complicated Grief, Columbia School of Social Work:
“Layperson question regarding complicated grief: Is complicated grief truly only a challenge for people grieving their loss of a person? Can it be activated by other kinds of loss, for example, loss of professional identity, divorce?”
