Sample text

Some experts in the area prefer the term “traumatic grief,” as it points to the syndrome being a stress response and because many of the symptoms (such as numbness, disbelief, anger, and the loss of trust and sense of security) resemble PTSD (Shear & Smith-Karoff, 2002). , 1997; Shear & Smith-Karoff, 2002). The “complication” in complicated bereavement can be best understood when we consider what would be a more adaptive reaction. This would mean that instead of disbelief and anger, the individual could acknowledge the loss, could remain connected with others, and could believe that life can still hold meaning and purpose.

Others (such as systematic desensitization, stress inoculation therapy, and assertiveness training) add behavior acquisition as a way to control or counter problematic responses. Another example is the psychodynamic approach, which focuses on making previously unconscious material conscious in order to increase one’s ability to cope with the material. As you can see, despite the varying targets, these treatments share the idea that some aspect of the client’s internal experience is not as it should be and needs modification.

Co-occurring PTSD and substance abuse is also a common problem (Najavits, 2001; Ouimette & Brown, 2003; Ruzek, Polusny, & Abueg, 1998). Use of substances is consistent with the model of experiential avoidance (Walser & Hayes, 2006). , 1998). Researchers have found that trauma survivors report substance use as a means of numbing traumatic memories (Root, 1989), and other research has shown that individuals who abuse alcohol are often drinking as a means to regulate negative emotional states (Marlatt & Gordon, 1985).
