Johnson, Jeffrey G.; First, Michael B.; Block, Susan; Vanderwerker, Lauren C.; Zivin, Kara; Zhang, Baohui; Prigerson, Holly G.
Death Studies, v33 n8 p691-711 2009
Severe grief symptoms, treatment receptivity, attitudes about grief, and stigmatization concerns were assessed in a community-based sample of 135 widowed participants in the Yale Bereavement Study. There was a statistically significant association between the severity of grief symptoms and reported negative reactions from friends and family members. However, more than 90% of the respondents with complicated grief, a severe grief disorder, reported that they would be relieved to know that having such a diagnosis was indicative of a recognizable psychiatric condition, and 100% reported that they would be interested in receiving treatment for their severe grief symptoms. (Contains 2 footnotes, 5 tables, and 1 figure.)
