Surviving Death: Stories of Grief

Top of page

When a loved one dies, the process of making the loss real can be a lonely and confusing experience. Surviving Death: Stories of Grief is about people negotiating a new relationship with life after losing a loved one. Seven people--parents, children, siblings, partners and friends--reveal how they have been affected by the death of someone close to them. The people profiled in Surviving Death come from different cultural backgrounds; they hope their stories will allow others to begin expressing and understanding their own grief. They speak about the pain and powerful emotions they have experienced, about their need to reassess values and relationships after a death, and about the ways they have found to survive their loss. Recognizing that there is no single or easy path to recovery, this video is a useful resource for those in grief and for those lending support to people who are grieving.
