Death & Dying : Cultural and Religious Perspectives
Death and Bereavement Across Cultures

Bereavement is less akin to the acute experimental stress created in a laboratory such as a film that makes viewers uncomfortable than it is to the stress of immigrants' uprooting and acculturation. It ushers in altered social roles, a new set of interactions with individuals and social institutions, and a search for meaning. Moreover, bereavement can be a source of distress not solely for one individual, or even a social network, but also for an entire community.
