The article deals with the issue of changing the identity of a personality in the context of the mourning process. Unlike the commonly conceived mourning in connection with the classically conceived death of a person, the issue (scheme) of mourning is applied to seven specific situations in human life, in the management of which there is also a correction or internal change of identity. Specifically, these include the loss of an unborn child, surrogacy, transgender children, illness (dementia) of the partner, separation from the partner, change of professional role and victim of crime.

Key words: identity, mourning, loss, motherhood, partner, professional role, victim.
