We know from empirical literature as well as common sense that good support during bereavement experiences is important. It’s particularly crucial where trauma and grief intersect. While the literature demonstrates the importance of good support in grief, few studies have explored the actions and actors of effective care for those mourning. This presentation will first examine the definitions of grief and where it intersects with trauma, illuminating varying dimensions on the effects of such loss. Then, we will explore the actions and actors of social support and discuss specific ways in which we, as a collective society, can provide the type of care that grievers, as the experts themselves, report as helpful.
