Example text

Both the experience of pain and the anticipation of such pain should increase one’s motivation to prevent the deaths of other loved ones. This framework has important implications for how we think about, study, and treat grief. As Nesse illustrates, an evolutionary prospective provides a fresh lens from which to view current research on grief and loss. For example, this perspective can help account for seemingly maladaptive behaviors revealed among bereaved persons, such as ruminating about the loss or blaming oneself for what has happened.

Scholars continue to debate important policy-relevant questions, such as: Who suffers more, men or women? Why do men and women respond differently to spousal loss? How do characteristics of the spouse’s death affect the bereaved survivor’s adjustment? Is “absent” grief indicative of a healthy or pathological reaction to loss? Conclusive answers to these questions require well-designed rigorous studies that are free of sampling, measurement, and other methodological limitations that may lead to biased or inconclusive findings.
