  • 2.

    • A.

      6 or 7

    • B.

      8 or 9

    • C.

      10 or 11

    Correct Answer
    B. 8 or 9
    Explanation
    Children generally come to an adult understanding about death at around the age of 8 or 9. At this age, children start to grasp the concept of death as permanent and irreversible. They begin to understand that death means the end of life and that all living things eventually die. This understanding is typically more developed than in younger children, who may still view death as temporary or reversible.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What concept does the child understand long before that of death?

    • A.

      Blame

    • B.

      Sorrow

    • C.

      Grief

    Correct Answer
    A. Blame
    Explanation
    The concept of blame is understood by a child long before the concept of death. Blame refers to holding someone responsible for a mistake or wrongdoing, which can be observed and understood in various social interactions from a young age. On the other hand, the concept of death involves understanding the permanent cessation of life, which may be more complex and abstract for a child to grasp. Therefore, it is likely that a child will have a better understanding of blame before comprehending the concept of death.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Children do not necessarily see the subject of death as morbid and unpleasant. Their understanding and perception of death may vary depending on their age, cultural background, and personal experiences. Some children may have a natural curiosity about death and ask questions, while others may find it confusing or frightening. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that all children see the subject of death as morbid and unpleasant.

      Unpleasant

    • E.

      A mixed blessing

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Unwished
    C. Involuntary
    D. Not anyone's fault
    Explanation
    It is important to make clear to a child that the death of a loved one is unwished because it is something that they did not want or desire to happen. It is also important to explain that the death is involuntary, meaning that it was not a choice or decision made by the person who died. Lastly, it is important to emphasize that the death is not anyone's fault, as this can help alleviate any feelings of guilt or blame that the child may have.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A great many suicides are cries for help that went wrong.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Many suicides are often seen as desperate attempts for help that unfortunately end in tragedy. People who contemplate suicide often feel isolated, overwhelmed, and hopeless, and their decision to take their own life may be a desperate plea for someone to notice their pain and intervene. While the intention may not be to actually die, the act of self-harm can easily result in a fatal outcome. Therefore, it can be said that a significant number of suicides can be seen as failed attempts to seek help.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is pathological denial?

    • A.

      When someone maintains a belief others do not hold

    • B.

      When someone believes that things will get better

    • C.

      When someone believes they did everything they could to avoid disaster

    Correct Answer
    A. When someone maintains a belief others do not hold
    Explanation
    Pathological denial refers to a situation where an individual continues to hold onto a belief that is not shared by others. This means that despite evidence or opinions to the contrary, the person refuses to accept or acknowledge the truth. This type of denial can be seen as an unhealthy defense mechanism, as it can prevent individuals from facing reality and addressing the underlying issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What kind of death requires much more effort for the client to come to terms with? (Select 2)

    • A.

      Death following illness

    • B.

      Sudden death

    • C.

      Violent death

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Sudden death
    C. Violent death
    Explanation
    Sudden death and violent death require much more effort for the client to come to terms with because they are unexpected and often traumatic. When a loved one dies suddenly or violently, there is little time for preparation or closure, which can make the grieving process more difficult. The shock and emotional impact of these types of deaths can also lead to feelings of guilt, confusion, and unresolved emotions, making it harder for the client to come to terms with the loss.
