Grief & Loss


DSA Resources

Overview: Grief and loss
Grief is the natural reaction to loss. Grief is part of everyday life. Experts are calling everyday small losses “micro-grief.” The difference between grief resulting from small losses and overwhelming grief is in the intensity and duration and depth of meaning of the experience. From small to unbearable losses – grief is a natural part of living a life. Whether the loss is a death, a relationship, a change in one’s personal or family circumstances, a job, or any other source – we hope the resources listed will be of some value in support of your situation.
