Bereavement In Childhood
Psychologists view the death of a child's parent as an extremely serious occurrence with life altering impact. The child's bereavement is a well studied topic for psychologists and psychotherapists to be educationally prepared and clinically experienced to assist bereaved children with this monumental grieving process when their parent has died.
The quagmire in child adoption, that the adopted child is expected to ignore the loss of their biological mother and be grateful about being adopted, is a contradictory expectation that leads to unhealthy defense mechanisms to cope with serious confusion to their traumatic loss. Psychopathy is the result from creating unrealistic demands for a young vulnerable child to deal with a life altering event without the assistance of a psychological professional.
