This report presents the special characteristics of the psychotherapy process with patient who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Because of the special background circumstances in which these losses have occurred - the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the 3-month lockdown because of , I have called these griefs suspended. In the article I offer the social background circumstances, the personal circumstances of the loss, and the therapeutic intervention with the special characteristics for both the therapist and the therapeutic setting. Finally, I offer some specific tools for working with this type of grief. All these consid-erations are made from the approach of Gestalt therapy as well as with the working model proposed by Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. This is coupled with my experience of more than 20 years in psychotherapeutic work with people who are living a grieving process.
Keywords: Grief, pandemic, loneliness, suffering, therapeutic bond.
