Grief is a person’s emotional, mental, and behavioural response to loss, as well as physiological changes.Prolonged grieving disorder (PGD) is a type of grief that lasts for a long time and interferes with one’s ability to function. Identity disruption, a marked sense of disbelief, avoidance of reminders of the loss, intense emotional pain related to the death, difficulty engaging in ongoing life, emotional numbness as a result of the death, feeling life is meaningless as a result of the death, or intense loneliness as a result of the death are all symptoms of bereavement.
A bereaved person’s mentality is still dominated by long-term sadness. The grieving individual feels lost and alone as the future appears dismal and empty.
Prolonged grieving disorder (PGD) was just formally included in the 11th version of the International Classification of Diseases. Unlike the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders [DSM-5] and the International Classification of Diseases [ICD-10], the ICD-11 simply utilizes a typological approach, suggesting that diagnosis descriptions are basic and there is no stringent necessity for the diagnosis. In the lack of well-defined criteria and diagnostic standards for PGD, researchers should use systematic methodologies to investigate the disorder’s features and compare it to previously suggested grieving disorders.
