F. retarding a child's psychosocial maturation
G. Loss-oriented coping involves focusing on and processing aspects of the loss (e.g., visiting the grave, looking at photographs, emoting related to the death), while restoration-oriented coping involves focusing on the secondary Stressors that must be dealt with (e.g., financial problems) and determining how to tackle them (e.g., selling one's house).

I. (1) numbness, detachment or absence of emotional responsiveness, (2) difficulty acknowledging the death, (3) feeling that life is empty or meaningless, (4) difficulty imagining a fulfilling life, (5) feeling part of oneself has died, (6) harmful symptoms or behavior related to the deceased, and a shattered worldview
J. (a) recognize the loss, (b) react to the separation, (c) recollect and reexperience the deceased and the relationship, (d) relinquish the old attachments to the deceased and the old assumptive world, (e) readjust to move adaptively into the new world without forgetting the old, and (f) reinvest.
K. Criterion A specifies that the symptoms of the disorder occur after the death of a significant other and include intrusive, distressing separation distress. Criterion B includes eleven marked and persistent symptoms that reflect the bereaved person's feelings of devastation as a result of the death. Criterion C specifies that the duration of symptoms must be at least two months. Criterion D requires that the symptomatic disturbance causes clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
L. 38% of recipients of grief counseling theoretically would have fared better if assigned to the no-treatment condition; in strong contrast, only 5% of clients in a broad range of psychotherapies for other problems showed such deterioration.
