Grief and Loss Therapy is a type of therapy in which patients and their loved ones are helped to deal with impending loss of a loved one, or with coping with the passing of a loved one.  This form of therapy can help with several stages of end of life issues including early stages of learning about a terminal illness diagnosis, coping with treatment or sudden loss, accepting limits of treatment for terminal illness, grieving, and post-departure resolution of emotions and life situation.
