Example text

Lewis described hypercathexis as he struggled with his wife’s death: “People get over these things . . one is ashamed to listen to this advice but it seems for a little while to be making out a good case. Then comes a sudden jab of red hot memory and all this ‘commonsense’ vanishes like an ant in the mouth of a furnace” (1961:7). According to the psychoanalytic perspective, a grieving individual must sort through internal or mental representations of the lost person, and then the ego must “decathect” from each one in order to reclaim “libido” for new mental activities, relationships, and commitments.

In turn, this process will prepare us for handling our own future pain and losses of life. When we confront loss, we are challenged to create meaning where none seems to exist. This intensely personal process means weaving an entirely new picture and story about ourselves, our world, and what it means to live. Loss through death, for example, marks the end of one chapter and signifies the beginning of a new one in our lives. As such, it can open doors to greater awareness, sensitivity, compassion, and even wisdom.

Grieving is the price we pay for being able to love the way we do; it is not an illness or pathology (Fleming and Bélanger 2001). In grief, people lose an essential part of what has become their inner experience of themselves and their assumptive world. They therefore must change their ideas about identity to match the new reality emerging from the loss and incorporate these changes into a new assumptive world (Archer 1999; Doka 2000a). ” Think how often we refer to someone’s carrying a heavy burden of grief.
