Grief: A Wall or a Door
This chapter discusses the concept of grief in the context of palliative care. It explains that grief is the natural reaction to the loss of someone or something to which we have formed a strong bond or attachment, and that it is a universal occurrence, individually experienced and repeatedly encountered. The chapter also shows how theorists' conception of grief works, and describes the rituals associated with grief and the author's experience of it.
