Social - Desire to take care of others in family, seeing family and friends, seclusion.<br />Bereavement – The period after a loss during which grief is experienced and mourning occurs. <br />Bereavement times can vary based on how attached the person was to the person who died, and the length of time spent on anticipating the loss.<br />Mourning – Process of how people adapt to the loss of someone or something.<br />Influenced by cultural customs, religion, rituals, and socio-historical influences. <br />
