This chapter discusses the language and discourse of bereavement in the context of palliative care. It traces the ways talking about and understanding bereavement back to some of the theoretical ideas which emerged in the last century and explores how dominant theories of loss influenced the understanding of bereavement. It shows how theoretical ideas have been incorporated into notions of ‘normal’ bereavement and discusses the role and function of childhood bereavement services.

Keywords:   bereavement, palliative care, loss, childhood bereavement, bereavement services
