Survivor-Victim Status, Attachment, and Sudden Death Bereavement.
Reed, Mark D.; Greenwald, Jason Y.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v21 n4 p385-401 Win 1991
Examined significance of survivor-victim relationship in understanding grief following sudden death bereavement by suicide or accident. Results showed that survivor-victim attachment was more important than survivor status (parent versus sibling/child) in explaining grief reactions. Compared to accident survivors, suicide survivors experienced less emotional distress and shock, but greater guilt/shame and rejection. (Author/NB)
