AbstractMore than 100,000 lives were lost during the Sichuan earthquake that struck on May 12, 2008. Individuals who suffered from multiple losses, especially bereaved mothers, are most vulnerable. , This presentation will share the observation on the trajectory of grief expression among bereaved persons in the earthquake, following our work with bereaved populations in a few severely hit disaster sites in the past years, includingbereaved persons adapt and cope as time passes. Effective healing practices and interventions will be shared. Findings from qualitative and quantitative studies will be discussed in the context of concepts of survivors’ guilt, continuing bond and healing rituals in meaning making. Objectives: 1. Learn how Chinese people have coped with a catastrophe such as the 512 earthquake over a period of three years. 2. Critically review the issues of meaning-making among bereaved persons who lost a loved one through the earthquake. 3.
