Adolescent Bereavement and Social Support: Peer Loss Compared to Other Losses.
Ringler, Laural L.; Hayden, Davis C.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v15 n2 p209-30 Mar 2000
Examined social support following loss of a peer, grandparent, or other person among adolescents 17 to 20 years old. Found that 70.6 percent had experienced loss, and 43.5 percent had experienced peer loss. Participants rated peers and parents as the most helpful supports. Comparisons of loss were difficult because few participants had lost a sibling or a parent. (Author/KB)
