Description:
This thesis will provide an overview of the principal theoretical approaches to the understanding of grief. It will review empirical applications of theory to treatment, and strategies recommended in the cognitive treatment of grief. It will highlight those areas identified as influential in successful adaptation to bereavement, and will present a cognitive formulation of complicated grief which has been developed in the light of findings from this review. The Methodology Section will outline selection procedure, study design, instruments and procedures used in the study. A description of treatment modules will be contained in the appendix section. Finally, results of a controlled psychotherapeutic intervention will be presented, and key findings emerging from the study will be discussed in the light of the literature review and the research questions posed. Limitations of the study, and suggestions for future research will be discussed, as well as implications for clinical practice.
