Carroll, Ruth; Shaefer, Sarah
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v28 n4 p273-84 1993-94
Examined differences within 34 pairs of parents bereaved by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), 3-40 months after their loss. Findings revealed that bereaved parents sought support from within family most frequently and from outside resources the least. Bereaved mothers used these coping patterns significantly more often than did fathers. Found gender differences in frequencies for expressing feelings. (Author/NB)
