Bereavement Stress and Coping among Older Adults: Expectations Versus the Actual Experience.
Caserta, Michael S.; Lund, Dale A.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v25 n1 p33-45 1992
Compared stress and coping levels of 108 older adults who recently lost their spouses with expectations of stress and coping reported by 85 matched nonbereaved controls. Although bereaved reported moderately high stress levels over two years, their stress scores were lower and coping scores higher than what nonbereaved anticipated their levels would be if their spouses died.
