Resilience and Bereavement: Part 1
This chapter examines resilience during bereavement in the context of palliative care. It explains that in the field of bereavement greater recognition is being given to the possibilities for positive adaptation to grief and that though estimates vary there is a consensus among researchers that a large proportion of people ultimately recover from grief. There are three common elements that define resilience during bereavement. These include personal resourcefulness, positive life perspective, and social embeddedness.
