Bereavement and College Students: The Role of Counseling Psychology
Servaty-Seib, Heather L.; Taub, Deborah J.
Counseling Psychologist, v38 n7 p947-975 Oct 2010
In this review article, the authors integrate the theoretical, empirical, and clinical literature relevant to the phenomenon of college student bereavement. They synthesize information on two theories of mourning that appear to fit well with the experience of bereaved college students with information about the developmental, cohort, and contextual situation of college students. They end the article with an integrated illustration and practical recommendations for counseling psychologists who work with bereaved college students in various capacities within higher education (e.g., administrators, clinicians, educators, and researchers).
