Recovering after a loved one’s wrongful death

The death of a spouse can be difficult under any circumstances. If a spouse dies because of misconduct at work, however, sometimes it can be harder for families to know what to do. While considering their options, it is important for Connecticut families to take time to grieve.

It can help families to remember that grief is a process. The American Psychological Association says that while it is common to think about different stages of grief, people usually do not experience this. Instead, most people recover according to their own time line, which can be different for everyone.

Although it may be difficult, it is a good idea to speak about a spouse’s death. This can help the surviving spouse process what happened. It may also be helpful to donate to an important cause in a spouse’s memory or raise awareness of workplace safety. Additionally, parents should remember that their children still need them. Making sure that a family has enough rest and eats regularly can help parents deal with their grief one day at a time.

Parents may find it difficult to help their children cope. Kidshealth.org says that it is a good idea to encourage children to express their emotions. Giving them permission to cry and feel sad helps children understand that their feelings are natural. It may also help to create something which preserves the memory of the deceased parent. By writing letters and looking at photos, parents can help their children come to terms with their feelings and understand how to move forward.
