The Relativity of Grief: Differential Adaptation Reactions of Younger and Older Persons.
Barnes, Melanie K.; And Others
Journal of Personal & Interpersonal Loss, v1 n4 p375-92 Oct-Dec 1996
Investigates the differential emotional and coping responses of 41 older and 48 younger respondents who had recently lost a loved one to death. Results show that older respondents confided more in close others and reported more account-making (storylike constructions) than did younger respondents, helping them adapt more readily to major loss.
