Psychologist Says Recovering Flight 370 Bodies Can Help Families Deal With Grief

The news Thursday that authorities believe newly detected pings means they are honing in on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370’s final resting place may also bring some much-needed closure for the families of the passengers on the doomed flight.

Thomas D. Cromer, Ph.D., Clinical Director of the Rosen Family Wellness Center for  Law Enforcement, Military Personnel and their Families, says the prolonged search can leave families wondering what happened and unsure if their loved ones are still alive.

“In many ways, recovering from this type of loss can be very challenging in regard to closure,” he said.

Recovering the aircraft, the psychologist said , will be a big step toward getting a more complete picture of what happened.
