Grief therapy is a kind of psychotherapy used to treat severe or complicated traumatic grief reactions,[1], which are usually brought on by the loss of a close person (by separation or death) or by community disaster. The goal of grief therapy is to identify and solve the psychological and emotional problems which appeared as a consequence. They may appear as behavioral or physical changes, psychosomatic disturbances, delayed or extreme mourning, conflictual problems or sudden and unexpected mourning).

Grief therapy may be available as individual or group therapy, and is usually very effective.[How to reference and link to summary or text] A common area where grief therapy has been extensively applied is to parents of cancer patients.
