Wheeler, Inese
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v28 n4 p261-71 1993-94
Volunteers (n=203) obtained through Compassionate Friends newsletters completed questionnaires consisting of Purpose in Life Test, Grief Experience Inventory, and questions on meaning. Findings indicated that lower purpose in life for bereaved parents was related to less time since death, loss by suicide, loss of only child, and loss of more than one child. (Author/NB)
