The impact of missing a loved one: A systematic review of quantitative and qualitative research (by "Lonneke Lenferink, Prof. Dr. Jos de Keijser, Prof. Dr. Paul Boelen, Dr. Ineke Wessel, Doety de Vries ")

There is a lot of research on losing a loved one and different theoretical frameworks have been developed. In this presentation the unique characteristics of missing a loved one are integrated in our model of complex grief. Specific characteristics of missing a loved one, like maintaining hope and avoiding loss-related confrontations, hinder the process of grief. Is it possible to create a theoretical framework for those who are missing a loved one on the basis of the loss-related frameworks? And what are the clinical consequences for this framework?
