FIERRO BARDAJI, Alfredo. How to cope with a loss: an outline on bibliotherapy from Proust. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.3, pp.60-67. ISSN 1989-3809.

Psychology seeks to understand human beings through their behaviour. However, there are other sources to obtain such understanding which, at its highest level, is generally regarded as "wisdom". Nowadays, wisdom is mainly found not only in philosophical texts and essays but also in literary works. This article draws from the work of Proust items of practical knowledge to cope with the loss of a beloved person, either by death or by disaffection.

Keywords : wisdom; love; loss; death; bereavement; coping.
