The evidence base for interventions for people with learning disabilities who have experienced a bereavement is sparse. This article reviews current theoretical understandings of bereavement and loss and describes the assessment, formulation and psychological treatment of a woman in her mid-forties with learning disabilities with close reference to these understandings. A psychological intervention is described, which utilizes both psycho-educational and psychodynamic approaches.
