Times of Mourning: Bereavement, Clinical Challenge, and Subjectivity works around the homonymous property of the word duelo in Spanish, which means both grief and duel. Adriana Bauab argues that the mourning process is a challenge and an opportunity for the subject to recompose their symbolic universe, recovering the function of lack that can ignite desire. Citing multiple clinical examples, Bauab proposes new tools for the treatment of grief.
