The Inner Representation of the Dead Child and the Worldviews of Bereaved Parents.
Klass, Dennis
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v26 n4 p255-72 1992-93
Notes that trauma of child's death challenges parents' worldview. Demonstrates how the task of affirming or remolding one's worldview is consistently intertwined with parents' continued interaction with inner representation of their dead child. Data are presented from 10-year ethnographic study of self-help group of bereaved parents. (Author/NB)
