The study aimed to examine the variables that play a role in the process of prolonged grief within the framework of the cognitive-behavioral model. Participants (N = 475) from Turkey took part in a cross-sectional questionnaire survey. The study used structural equation modeling to test a hypothesized model via AMOS v23. After testing two options, the final model was found to be good fit for the data. Results suggested the importance of adopting a comprehensive approach to prolonged grief interventions which includes the loss- and relationship-related factors as well as emotion regulation difficulties, autobiographic memory characteristics, and the grief cognitions.
