 The loss of a darling or an important person in an individual's life is an event that always leads to grief in the close relatives of the deceased. Grief has comprehensive effects on the bereaved. The measurement of grief depends on the availability of appropriate tools. "Grief Experience Questionnaire" (GEQ) was designed by Bart and Scot (1998) to measure grief reactions. After preparing the scale, the researchers measured the validity and the reliability of this questionnaire in a group of students who had experienced grief. 348 participants were randomly selected for the study the investigation of main components confirmed the existence of seven factors and thirty four items. These factors had acceptable internal consistency (coefficients of Cronbach's Alpha were between 0.86 and 0.40). Moreover, the factors of this questionnaire revealed an appropriate convergent reliability for the two subscales of depression and somatization.GHQ-28 (p≤0.01) and (p≤0.01) SCL-25. A score pattern for GEQ was also obtained for the two different sexes.
