HAYASIDA, Nazaré Maria de Albuquerque; ASSAYAG, Raquel Helena; FIGUEIRA, Isa  e  MATOS, Margarida Gaspar de. Death and mourning: skills of professionals. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2014, vol.10, n.2, pp. 112-121. ISSN 1808-5687.

The social concept of death is the result of a long historical process, marked by different economic, social and customs systems that also involve existential, subjective and spiritual dimensions. This article aims to review death and mourning and professional skills in various contexts. The methodology of this work consists of a literature review of articles found in the databases PubMed,, BVS Psi, EBSCO, LILACS, PePSIC, PsycNET, Science Direct and Web of Knowledge (ISI), during the period of 2008 to 2014, using the search terms death, mourning and professionals, including the life cycle (children, adolescents, adults and elderly). It was concluded that there is deficiency in the educational training of professionals who deal with death and grief, especially those working in health contexts. The need to create educational programs discussing death was observed in the curricula of professionals and society in general, including interventional measures and protocols in cognitive-behavioral therapy to acquire skills in proper and healthy coping with these experiences.

Palavras-chave : professional competence; mourning; death.
