Example text

Christopher’s Hospice in London and cared for the bereaved relatives of dying cancer patients. He described the manner in which loss altered the bereaved’s assumptive world (Parkes, 1972)—that set of notions, beliefs, and ideas about life that are carried by social and cultural groups of people in a taken-for-granted manner (JanoffBulman, 1989). Within the assumptive world lies a series of core expectations: life is fair, good health is deserved, we are worthy, the world is benevolent, the elderly die before the young, and what happens makes sense (Janoff-Bulman, 1992).

In contrast, very dysfunctional families show maladaptive patterns in dealing with losses, often becoming stuck in the past or rushing ahead and cutting themselves off from painful memories and contacts. Throughout their life cycle, surviving family members seek to make sense of each death, as they integrate this with their other life experiences, especially losses. Their construction of the death may change over time, and it may influence present and future approaches to other losses. Each loss ties in with all other losses, yet is unique in its meaning.

The family rallied with loving intent, and a devoted sister like Tante Karen sacrificed her personal future for the sake of her deceased sister’s children. Practicality prevailed! But the empathic support that might permit ready expression and sharing of feelings was replaced by a more rigid oppression and fundamental religious stance that had been accepted across several generations. The face of the artist, Edvard Munch, is blank across many works of his family gathered around the deathbed. His father prays fervently; his aunt nurses the sick.
