Aging Widows and Widowers: Are There Mental Health Differences?
Feinson, Marjorie Chary
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v23 n4 p241-55 1986
Examined the perception that men, specifically aging men, are more emotionally distressed than aging women by their spouse's death. Presents data from a random probability community mental health survey (N=163). Findings do not support the perception that aging widowers experience more emotional problems during bereavement than do aging widows. (Author/NB)
