AbstractIn recent decades research evidence on the experience of grief has led to a broadening of attention from the traditional focus on an emotional journey from distress to ‘recovery’. This article looks at how early stage theories of grief came to be rejected and examines more recent theories which also consider the cognitive, social, cultural and spiritual dimensions of grief and loss. It goes on to highlight emerging trends in bereavement theory, potential complications of grief, and the evidence for the efficacy of grief interventions.
