I'd almost believe you if it wasn't for the part of the article that read "The participants at this session were sent by their employer, human resources firm Staffs.". I don't see staff members volunteering for this, let alone people signing up for this of their own free will.

I wouldn't necessarily trust the positive feedback from participants either. After all, who would willingly give truthful feedback to an employer that actually believes that this would have the kind of positive effect they seem to believe that it would?

There is a documentary from Vice that talks about the kind of fake funeral in more details.


It is used and viewed as a therapy for a lot of people. I do agree that people should be given the choice to turn down it.
