King, Kathleen P.
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v51 n2 p13-25 Spr 2003
A participant-observer study included initial and 10-month follow-up surveys of 19 adult learners before and after the September 11th terrorist attacks; 18 described their experiences as perspective transformation. Grief stages were observed; the reorganization stage was most evident. Combining the models of transformative learning and grief enabled them to recognize learning through bereavement.
