This programme explains the normal emotional reactions to bereavement. It spells out the range of normality and points to the roles of friends, relatives and professionals. It does not deal with pathological reactions. The story follows a family who experience the death of a child in a road traffic accident. The processes of denial, anger and resolution are illustrated both in picture and in song. The social and cultural factors are touched on, as are the different experiences of the family members.
The professional comments are succinct and provide explanations. They have been carefully chosen for the intended audience.
