This article in the New York Times gives an interesting overview of Complicated Grief and treatment possibilities. The main subject sought treatment at the Columbia University Center for Complicated Grief after mourning for her husband for nine years. Her grief was deemed to be complicated as the intensity of her pain was still severe after nine years, and she experienced herself as still being “mired in grief”.
For those who think that their grief might be complicated this could be a helpful read. Please feel free to post thoughts, questions and responses.
