Drawing upon extensive interviews and assessments of school-age childr en who have lost a parent to death, this book offers a richly textured portrait of the mourning process in children. The volume presents maj or findings from the Harvard Child Bereavement Study and places them i n the context of previous research, shedding new light on both the wid e range of normal variation in children's experiences of grief and the factors that put bereaved children at risk. The book also compares pa rentally bereaved children with those who have suffered loss of a sibl ing to death, or of a parent through divorce, exploring similarities a nd differences in these experiences of loss. A concluding section expl ores the clinical implications of the findings and includes a review o f intervention models and activities, as well as a screening instrumen t designed to help identify high-risk bereaved children.
