Intrapersonal Resources and the Effectiveness of Self-Help Groups for Bereaved Older Adults.
Caserta, Michael S.; Lund, Dale A.
Gerontologist, v33 n5 p619-29 Oct 1993
Examined relative impact of 3 intrapersonal resources (self-esteem, competencies, and life satisfaction) and duration of self-help group intervention on levels of depression and grief over time among 295 recently widowed adults. Found that, in general, resources examined had greater direct influence on outcomes than did intervention. (Author/NB)
