Crying and Depression Among Older Adults.
Hastrup, Janice L.; And Others
Gerontologist, v26 n1 p91-96 Feb 1986
Self-reports of frequency of crying episodes are described for two nonclinical samples of younger and older adult men and women. Comparison of samples revealed no evidence for either a decreased or increased frequency of crying among the older sample. Crying episodes function as an adaptive coping response to and should not be automatically interpreted as a sign of depression. (Author/ABL)
