Childhood Grief and the Church's Response
Pond, Shelley Kim
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v22 n2 p113-138 2013
The study investigated how previous childhood grievers viewed the church's effectiveness in ministry following their loss. The phenomenological qualitative nature of the study was based on semi-structured interviews that were reflective in nature; participants were age 18 to 22 years at the time of the study, but were age 6 to 12 years at the time of their loss. The interview sessions were analyzed, compared with other interviews, and then reviewed by sample group participants in order to identify reoccurring themes. Suggestions for effective ministry to childhood grievers were located at the conclusion of the data analysis section.
