Bereavement Following Suicide and Other Deaths: Why Support Attempts Fail.
Thompson, Karin E.; Range, Lillian M.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v26 n1 p61-70 1992-93
Examined perceptions of bereaved undergraduate students (n=112) and a matched group of potential comforters. Bereaved students reported experiencing more unhelpfulness and blame and less interpersonal contact than potential comforters thought they would give, but also reported more recovery and acceptance, more helpful support, and less need for active avoidance, than potential comforters imagined.
