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.
