Latinos and Anglos: Cultural Experiences of Grief Intensity.
Grabowski, Jo-Anne; Frantz, Thomas T.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v26 n4 p273-85 1992-93
Examined grief intensity among 50 Latino and 50 Anglo Americans. Latinos grieving sudden death had significantly greater grief intensity than Latinos grieving expected death and Anglos grieving either sudden or expected death. Funeral attendance, time since death, closeness of relationships had no significant effect on grief intensity, nor did participation in novena or acculturation for Latinos. (Author/NB)
