In this article, with the aid of using ‘demanding loss’ we suggest all the ones instances wherein the loss of life of a cherished one occurs all at once and violently, including in instances of suicide, murder, street twist of fate, twist of fate at paintings and herbal disaster. These are unpredictable and sudden deaths because the man or woman who mourns them normally did now no longer have the opportunity to mentally expect them. Traumatic deaths commonly have significant outcomes at the intellectual fitness of folks who remain, that could complicate the grieving technique. Various elements can preclude or favour the processing of the loss. Additionally, the pleasant of the communique of loss of life have to be taken into consideration, because the manner wherein the notification is made can have an effect on the technique of model to the loss. Notification is the authentic communique of the loss of life of a cherished one, performed typically with the aid of using a doctor, nurse or police officer or, in a few instances, with the aid of using spiritual figures. Professionals in rate of communique ought to be absolutely privy to the significance of getting an mind-set suitable to the sensitive circumstance, on the grounds that touchy communique can incorporate the man or woman’s reactions. For this reason, it's far critical to paintings at the communique competencies of the specialists concerned if you want to be capable of reduce, at the least in part, each the ache of the family and the pressure that the execution of this undertaking involves [1].

The communique of an sudden and violent loss of life forces the human beings concerned to stay very excessive moments: for the recipients (own circle of relatives and friends), the moment of notification represents a watershed among a before (the existence that become) and an after (the existence with the intention to be without the cherished one). This is a circumstance that frequently leaves an indelible mark over time, of which a specially clear reminiscence is preserved. In addition to private discomfort, the operators in rate of giving the tragic information have to additionally learn how to manipulate the emotional disturbance manifested with the aid of using the recipients. Indeed, speaking an sudden and violent loss of life can initiate reactions of surprise and ache withinside the recipient, extended silences or sturdy emotional outbursts, observed with the aid of using screams and manifestations of anger, dissociation and depersonalization [2].

It frequently occurs that expert figures must engage with own circle of relatives contributors in contexts including sanatorium wards, the web website online of the twist of fate or the house of the notified persons. In such instances, the evaluation of needs, attitudes and ideals and the constructing of the connection with the man or woman have a tendency to occur concurrently in place of sequentially. The loss of preceding knowledge, the frequently insufficient spaces, the restricted time to be had and the cultural and age variations among interlocutors make the notification technique very challenging. In addition to coping with those aspects, the notification of demanding loss of life involves a significant emotional and pressure load for the expert discern concerned, which is likewise associated with the total focus that the notification will all the time adjust the lives of who gets it [3].

This article provides the preliminary outcomes from the attitude of the notifiers via a qualitative interpretative studies design, which become taken into consideration the maximum appropriate approach for taking pictures the enjoy of the people and their specific views at the scenario they had been concerned in. In specific, we aimed to analyze the diploma of guidance of the specialist’s maximum frequently concerned on this tough undertaking to speak an sudden and violent loss of life. We gave area to the narratives of doctors, nurses and law enforcement officials. The enjoy of the communique and next moments, the strategies adopted, the education and assist obtained to cope with communique had been the fundamental regions investigated [4].

The individuals had been recruited via the institutional channels of the Autonomous Police Syndicate (SAP) and the College of Physicians of the provinces of Rovigo and Belluno, which marketed the investigation, thus selling the participation of law enforcement officials and fitness specialists. Furthermore, the social channels of ONG De Leo Fund and the Department of General Psychology of the University of Padua had been used to widen the recruitment. To gather the private expression of the stories lived with the aid of using specialists which have communicated an sudden and violent loss of life during their duties, an advert hoc on line questionnaire become created and disseminated via the Qualtrics software. The questions had been created advert hoc, due to the fact it allowed us to extra freely look at regions of interest. In addition, we chose to manage the questionnaire on line which will appreciate the criterion of economic system and attain a pattern as big as possible [5].
