Examined relationship between widow's sex role identity and adjustment to loss of a spouse by administering Bem Sex Role Inventory, certain scales of the Bell Adjustment Inventory, and the Carey Adjustment/Depression Scale for Widows to 45 widows. Significant between-group differences were found, suggesting a relationship between behavioral flexibility as reflected in sex role identity and loss adjustment. (Author/NB)
