(III) The classic grief work model

1. Shock and disbelief

Immediately following a death, survivors often feel lost and confused.

An awareness of the loss sinks in the initial stage gives way to overwhelming feelings or sadness and frequent crying.

This first state may last several weeks, especially after a sudden or unexpected death.

2. Preoccupation with the memory of the dead person

  • In the second stage, which may last six months to two years or so, the survivor tries to come to terms with the death but cannot accept it.
  • From time to time, survivor may be sized by a feeling that the dead person is present.These experiences diminish with time, though they may recur on such occasions as the anniversary of the marriage or of the death.

3. Resolution

The final stage has arrived when the bereaved person renews interest in everyday activities. Memories of the dead person bring warm feelings associated with sadness, rather than sharp pain and longing.

(V)Life Review

Reviewing a life

Life review can occur at any time. However, it may have special meaning in old age, when it can foster ego integrity – according to Erikson, the final critical task of the life span.

People may look back over their accomplishment and failures and ask themselves what their lives have meant.

(V)Life Review
  • Life review therapy can help focus the natural process of life review and make it more conscious, purposeful, and efficient.
  • Methods often used for uncovering memories in life-review therapy including recording an autobiography (自傳); constructing a family tree, spending time with scrapbooks, photo albums, old letters and other memorabilia, making a trip back to scenes of childhood and young adulthood.

  • 一種對人生抱感謝和欣賞的心理狀態


  • 感恩有助維持緊密的人際關係
  • 更多助人行為和正面情緒
  • 更少負面情緒(抑鬱、焦慮、妒忌)
  • 更少物質主義的態度和想法
  • 可分3個向度
    • 過去  感恩…
    • 現在  快樂…
    • 將來  樂觀…


  • 心理學家沙尼文博士(Dr. Seligman)認為,一個人樂觀或悲觀,取決於三個歸因事情的思想層面,包括:恆久性、普遍性及個人性。
  • 而是在於珍惜與知足
  • 人生時時刻刻都是新的體驗
  • 懂得體會當下的感受
  • 原來,快樂就是那麼簡單
