New York, NY (PRWEB) July 02, 2013 The experiences of loss and grief are present in the arena of life.
The loss of a loved one has a rippling affect on a person. Every aspect of the person’s life can be changed. The more dependent, the worse the situation. Bereavement counselors can help.
But in the meantime society needs to realize that the more dependent or influential the person was to others, the greater the secondary losses.
By secondary losses we mean losses that are due to the lack of the person’s influence. They can be great or seem very minute but are nonetheless felt throughout the social structure.
For instance, for one family the loss of a bread winner may be a great loss as a source of income. It could also seem as small as someone who would tell a small child a bed time story yet while small it is still catastrophic to the one losing that time and attention.
So as grief counselors we need to recognize secondary losses, small and large, and help clients adjust to these losses as well as the primary loss of a loved one.
