On bereavement interventions: Controversy and consensus

Simon Shimshon Rubin, Ruth Malkinson, Eliezer Witztum

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


How to help people deal with the loss of a loved one is a matter of concern shared by individuals, families, communities, and societies. With scientific and clinical advances in the field of thanatology, our ability to describe and specify variations and dimensions of the bereavement response has grown dramatically (Malkinson, 2007; Malkinson, Rubin & Witztum, 2000; Rando, 1993). Theory, research, and clinical experience have deepened our appreciation of the lifelong impact of bereavement on the survivors.
