Surviving the Loss of a Child with a Disability: Is Loss the End of Chronic Sorrow? Three Case Studies.
Chomicki, Sandra; And Others
Physical Disabilities: Education and Related Services, v13 n2 p17-30 Spr 1995
Three case studies describe the process of parental grieving for the loss of a child with a disability. Characteristics of mourning unique to such a death are discussed. It is argued that, contrary to suggestions that chronic sorrow may end with the child's death, the emotion continues to emerge at peak times throughout the life of the parent. (Author/PB)
