• The feelings of grief, denial, anxiety, fear, depression, guilt, and anger, and differentiating between grief, mourning, and bereavement

• “Normal” vs. “abnormal” grief, including the differences between grief and depression, reasons people get "stuck" in their grief, and individual and family dynamics that influence grief reactions
