Grief Counseling Certification Program Article on Grief

Grief is a reaction to loss.  It is ultimately the price of love because its intensity correlates with attachment to the person or object lost.  The adjustment period to the loss is the grieving process but the reality is the adjustment period does not completely heal but merely teaches someone how to live without the person lost.  The pain of loss is never completely removed but continues to exist within the person but at acceptable levels that do not hinder everyday life on a consistent basis.
