Grief Brief 30 - Feelings of Emancipation

In a situation of abuse or neglect, feelings of emancipation are often a welcome relief. If you witness an emancipatory type behavior in the recently bereaved, realize that it is likely the result of liberty from horrific experiences. This person may need great understanding and gentle reconstruction of their self-esteem, self-value and self worth. Juvenile behaviors may be underlying and professional guidance and/or intervention might be helpful.
