Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one. This is a major loss event and can cause an emotional crisis. Grief is a normal reaction to any form of loss, from loss of a death of loved one, pregnancy loss, relationship breakdown, loss of a pet, or anything special or meaningful to you. Grief and Bereavement can encompass a variety of feelings from deep sadness and anger, to numbness and confusion. The process of adapting to significant loss can vary from one person to another.
