Details: Loss Assignment I. Write a brief summary of the ‘story’ of the person who passed away based on the information provided in the obituary. II. Consider what the loss experience was like for the family. How might the circumstances of the death impact the grieving process for the family? Summarize your concerns. III. Imagine that you are caring for a family member (of the obituary you’ve chosen). Imagine they have become tearful and have disclosed their loss experience. Consider how you may respond to them: a) Based on the length of time between the loss date and the current date; what phase of grief do you anticipate they are in now? b) What might you anticipate as their symptoms of loss and grief? Design a preliminary, educationally oriented response to this family member who is now your patient. This may be formatted as key bullet points. Please include any resources or supports you might offer them. You may include outside references (your text or preferably a professional journal article) on interventions for grief. Please note any references in APA format. IV. Lastly, please consider a personal loss you have experienced and feel comfortable sharing with me. Describe this experience briefly, noting the time and circumstances of the loss. Consider how your loss experience may have sensitized you to the experiences of others? Will this be an advantage or a disadvantage in relating to others? What did you learn about yourself from this experience? What was surprising to you? What helped you in the healing/ grieving process? Obituary: Clark, Michael Nathan Age 21 of Boxborough passed away on Sunday Dec. 12, 2013 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
