    Walsh (2007, p. 209) states a family experience can include the following losses:

    ·        sense of physical or psychological wholeness (e.g., with serious bodily harm);

    ·        significant persons, roles, and relationships;

    ·        head of family or community leader;

    ·        intact family unit, homes, or communities;

    ·        way of life and economic livelihood;

    ·        future potential (e.g., with the loss of children);

    ·        hopes and dreams for all that might have been; shattered assumptions in core worldview (e.g. loss of security, predictability, or trust).
