Hidden Trauma, Quiet Drama: The Prominence and Consequence of Complicated Grief among College Students
Cox, Bradley E.; Dean, Jessica G.; Kowalski, Robin
Journal of College Student Development, v56 n3 p280-285 Apr 2015
Previous studies suggest the loss of a loved one is a common experience among college students. This paper draws from 2 independent but complementary studies to (a) update statistics regarding the scale of student grieving, (b) characterize the short and long term consequences of loss among college students, and (c) identify factors that deter grieving students from seeking professional assistance at campus counseling centers. The paper concludes with suggestions for ways in which institutions can help affected students stay on track to college success.
