If you are comfortable in the role of confidant, encourage the bereaved parent to talk honestly with you about what they are feeling. Assure them that they can talk openly and freely about what they are going through, but don't push them to talk. Once you have let them know that you are willing to listen, let them take the lead. They will open up to you when they are ready.
