Grief and Depression in Newly Widowed Parents with School-Age Children.
Worden, J. William; Silverman, Phyllis S.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v27 n3 p251-61 1993
Examined depression in widowed parents (n=70) and distinguished bereavement dysphoria from clinical depression. Found that 56% of parents had high depression scores at four months; 44% had high depression scores at one year following death. High depression was associated with more family life changes, limited income, lack of peer support, more younger children, and difficulty mobilizing support. (Author/NB)
