Grief refers to the distinctive intense feelings triggered by a loved one’s death or any other severe loss. Grief is considered general, almost universal, and in several different ways, it expresses itself to various characteristics. An individual with grief may experience fluctuating thoughts occurring in intense waves. Complicated grieving is complex grief that may trigger psychological or preexisting conditions such as substance abuse, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (Shear & Bloom, 2017). It is associated mainly with a violent death, death of a child, and multiple deaths.
