Adolescent Bereavement and the Domain of Prevention
Balk, David
Prevention Researcher, v9 n2 p14-15 2002
Bereavement researchers have made some significant advances in the understanding of the dynamics and the processes of managing grief. In this article, the author presents three of these advances that are central to a discussion of adolescent grief and of preventive interventions: (1) Increasingly, both clinical and research evidence indicate that on-going attachment to the deceased marks the lives of some persons managing their grief; (2) The realization that bereaved individuals manage their bereavement not only by confronting the pain and distress of grief; and (3) The growing attention to the realities of adolescent bereavement. The author also provides a framework for these preventive interventions and discusses the prevalence of adolescent bereavement, the re-grief phenomenon, and how spirituality and grief may interact.
