Abstract

Introduction: Due to the loss of a loved one, mourning occurs, considered as the process of coping and psychosocial reorganization that corresponds to a series of personal and family interactions due to the death of a human being.
Objective: to determine the family's coping with grief.
Method: the study was carried out from a quantitative approach, with a non-experimental, cross-sectional and descriptive design. The instrument used was the "Revised Texas Grief Inventory" adapted to Spanish by García García (2005). Which evaluates two dimensions: behavior in the past and current feelings, this was applied to 100 relatives of deceased patients from the Tisaleo canton.
Results: in the dimension of behaviors in the past, the definitive absence of a family member leaves emotional consequences that are difficult to overcome and not proceeding with alternative solutions leads to even deeper situations that affect their work, family and self-performance, by as in the dimension of current feelings, the pain of a death becomes more acute, because the environment for the mourners is not favorable and on many occasions they find relief in inappropriate resources.
Conclusions: family coping is the process that a person goes through after losing a relative or a loved one, which presents anxiety and depression.
