Patterns of Change Following Parent Death in Midlife Adults.
Douglas, Joan Delahanty
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v22 n2 p123-37 1990-91
Interviewed 40 midlife adults following death of parent. Findings suggest that quality of early parent-child bond was related to grief reactions. Women demonstrated greater affect than men following father's death; both sexes demonstrated strong affect following mother's death. Parent death preceded time of upheaval and transition related to themes of personal mortality and to changes in interpersonal relationships. (Author/NB)
