The two words – grief counselling and trauma counselling – are increasingly converging. This is partially due to the occurrence of large-scale natural disasters and wars, which affect the lives of many; increasing levels of violence in our industrialised society; and advances in life-saving and supportive medical technologies. Deaths are often sudden, violent, and unexpected, or sometimes proceeded by lengthy and exhausting periods. Counsellors are being seen by an increased number of persons experiencing traumatised grief responses due to the nature of the loved ones’ deaths, necessitating a larger repertoire off effective interventions. The Genogram is a useful tool in helping understand traumatic grief responses, and the "power therapies" are effective techniques in dealing with the "traumatic aspects" that interfere with mourning.

Key words: Trauma – Grief – Genogram
