Example text

Wishing someone dead’. As a result they may feel that the death is a form of punishment to them for doing something wrong. Stage 3: 7 years to adult From 7 or 8 years of age onwards, most children have an adult understanding of death, but some may still see death as a form of punishment and there may still be signs of magical thinking. Their own future death becomes more of a reality. During the adolescent stage their concept of death becomes more abstract and they understand more of the long-term consequences of loss.

They may also have feelings of guilt: for example, blaming themselves for an act or omission that may have altered the course of events or even prevented or caused the loss. This could include regrets. They may also be angry with others such as the medical services and attach outside blame for this loss. In time, these feelings may be replaced with feelings of sadness or even depression. Eventually, for most people the loss will be finally accepted or resolved. For a minority, including some children, they may be ‘stuck’ at a particular stage and need the help of outside agencies.

The bereaved has: · a continuing relationship with the deceased · no ‘detachment’ from the deceased · a changing relationship with the deceased over time · no ‘resolution’ of the loss. The idea of this model is that the bereaved retains a continuing but changing relationship with that which has been lost. There is no notion of resolution or acceptance in this model, but the relationship unfolds over time. Other cultures and previous generations would have been quite comfortable with the idea that the link with the past is unbroken and that a relationship continues.
