This article reviews literature on therapists’ bereavement and loss experiences and how these experiences affect them personally and professionally. To afford a holistic, elaborate, and flexible view on loss, this review uses central theories on bereavement as a framework. Therapists’ bereavement and loss experiences are presented within three different contexts: the death of a close relative, the end of therapy owing to client death, and other types of personal loss. The article ends with recommendations for possible future research.
