This chapter discusses ways of changing destructive perceptions of those grieving over the death of a loved one, describing the case of seven-year-old girl, Jenna, who was told by the rabbi, and believed, that her deceased brother would be punished in heaven because her mother was always crying over him. It explains that there are several strategies for changing someone's destructive perception, including direct confrontation, but care must be taken to choose a strategy which is likely to work with that individual.

Keywords:   destructive perceptions, death, grieving, rabbi, girl, direct confrontation
