Liberating Losses: When Death Brings Relief
Jennifer Elison (au); Chris McGonigle (au). As taboo as it is to admit, not every death brings great sadness. “Nontraditional loss response” is a positive reaction following a death & is frequently encountered now that medical treatments keep people alive much longer than they or their families might wish. We may be relieved a loved one is no longer suffering, or we may feel relieved to be free of an abusive relationship. Either way, the cultural expectation for sadness, loneliness, & despair only adds to the guilt felt by many “relieved grievers.” Illuminating for the first time a reaction that many deem insensitive, the authors share their pragmatic counsel & stories of ’ “liberating losses.” Expands the traditional definition of grief, &, in so doing, validates the emotions that many of us feel obliged to hide.
