Williamson, Jonathan; Softas-Nall, Basilia; Miller, Jill
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v11 n1 p23-32 Jan 2003
A qualitative study was designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the experiences and emotions of grandmothers raising their grandchildren. The grandmothers' stories revealed common themes of anger, frustration, loss, hurt, and depression. A key finding was that grandmothers who did not report depression had positive and helpful relationships with the parents of the grandchildren. (Contains 32 references.) (GCP)
