dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research is twofold. Firstly it aims to explore therapists’ emotions, thoughts and other reactions associated with experiencing clients’ death. Within this it investigates the eventual impact of this phenomenon and ways of dealing with it, on professional and personal life of clinicians and their clinical practice. The second purpose is to contribute to the discussion on the subject of therapists’ grief over clients’ death. It was decided that adaptation of qualitative inquiry method as a research design will be most beneficial for this study. Semi structured interviews were conducted with four participants recruited by the gatekeepers. Data collated were subject to thematic analysis. Results were presented under themes: (1) relation between the style of the relationship and the intensity of grief, (2) emotional reactions, (3) obstacles and support in processing grief and (4) various way of closing the therapy. Findings of this research confirmed opinions expressed in the available literature: encountering clients’ death does have an impact on the therapist. Participants reported this experience shaping their way of working with clients, mentioning both positive and negative impact. The therapists who encountered clients’ death earlier in their practice had been affected in a stronger way. Recommendations for further research were then addressed.en
