Abstract

The article is part of the wide territory of mourning, in order to unify the most significant contributions in the fields of psychiatry and dynamic psychology, psychosocial and anthropological thanatology, psycho-oncology and palliative medicine. The subject is considered in relation to clinical aspects that exist between diagnosis and prognosis, which are useful in defining how to prevent pathological tendencies. The article adopts the meaning of "unresolved grief" in place of the various definitions appeared in the different fields of study and in the various editions of the DSM ("grief disorder", "pathological mourning", "complicated grief" ...). Some models are described and compared, according to what is indicated by the diagnostic manual, to highlight the normality of the suffering caused by the death. The discussion on the relationships between risk and protective factors, depending on the different possibilities of intervention (prevention, counseling and psychotherapy, involving individuals, groups and communities) also hints at the possibility of introducing targeted paths of death education.
