Their narrative stories suggest strategies and interventions effective in coping with loss. An historical perspective of research on theories of grief is presented. Narrative stories and theories are compared in order to determine the most effective counseling strategies and interventions. This study demonstrates the need for continued research in the area of counseling bereaved individuals.
