The Grieving Process during the Economic Crisis in Greece

Kotsopoulou Anastasia and Koutsompou Violetta-Irene
Abstract—In life, people face many complicated situations and experience a number of changes either positive or negative. In both cases, people are asked to address them, to make decisions and to work with them in a psychological level in order to accept them and enhance them in their present and future way of life. The main purpose of the presented article is to reveal how Greek people experience and cope with the current unpleasant economic situation in their country. Through the literature review conducted here, as well as through everyday interaction with a large percentage of people, it has been proven that there is a huge difficulty in dealing with the existing circumstances since Greeks are not able to move forward in the steps of the grieving process.

Index Terms—Crisis, economy, grief, loss, survival.
