Some losses create such a strong trauma that the mourning process cannot be initiated. Consequently symptoms appear which, exercise the function of covering incurable wounds, diverting the attention of all family members to other sources of discomfort. This article offers two clinical examples of this type of problem as well as any possible strategies oriented towards resilience.
