Many factors influence how individuals experience and adapt to loss. Among these are the nature of the loss, the relationship and attachment to the loss, the circumstances surrounding the loss, personal variables and social variables. This volume examines the ways in which these key aspects of identity affect how individuals grieve. Specifically explored are the effects of such variables as culture, spirituality, age and developmental level, class and gender on the ways individuals grieve. The book aims to remind caregivers that special consideration should be paid to such variables in working with clients and designing interventive and supportive programs. Additionally, the book offers reassurance to survivors of loss, reminding them of the many reasons their grief is unique. The book was produced as a companion to the Hospice Foundation of America's fifth annual National Bereavement Teleconference.
