The loss coping process people go through when grieving is as different as the people who cope, or as those who are affected by the an undesirable event. Although, in the broad form, there are similarities in the way that different people cope with loss, how these people grief is often different. According to Nolen-Hoeksema & Judith Larson (1999), people often have set believes about how others should cope with losses, yet, they always show differences in the strategies they employ to cope with the emotional and practical consequences that results from a loss. These differences in strategies are often tied to the differences in the losses suffered, age of the affected person, gender, and personality characteristics. This paper will examine the way that people cope with loss and the different strategies they use to adopt to these losses.
