Abstract

Complicated grief is a situation in which the individual, faced with a loss, does not present adaptive responses in dealing with this stimulus. This study aimed to understand how Complicated Grief may be a factor that may interfere in the sleep process, seeking possible relationships between these two themes. Thus, a review of the literature dealing with complicated grief and the sleep process has been done. It can be observed in cases of Complicated Grief, individuals tended to present problems related to sleep, either alterations in the amount of sleeping hours or greater difficulty in getting to sleep. Further researches are needed to relate Complicated Grief to the sleep process since those are two aspects that can be related.
