dc.description.abstractIn this autoethnography, I explore my lived experiences of the dying and death of my brother and my grief in the six months following his death; reflect on my use of creative arts-based methods to shape and guide my grieving process; cultivate an understanding of grief as a process to be honoured as opposed to a problem to mitigate; and inform policies and practices to support siblings who are bereaved. The questions that guide the study are: (1) What are my lived experiences of the dying and death of my brother and my grief in the six months following his death? (2) How do creative arts-based methods support grieving processes? (3) How can my lived experiences of the dying and death of my brother and my grief in the six months following his death inform research and practice? My lived experiences are told as stories: my need to know and remember. Recommendations include: practice caution and compassion; recognize categories and labels as potentially problematic; offer resources to support goodbyes; and engage in ceremonies and rituals to support grieving processes. Recommendations of my study are designed to provide guidance for researchers, practitioners, and survivors of a loved one’s death.
