Shared Reminiscence about a Deceased Parent: Implications for Grief Education and Grief Counseling
Preview not available

Abstract

Interviews with 16 adults who had lost a parent indicate that shared reminiscence after parent death is common, particularly between siblings, and affects grief work, social support, and relationships with surviving family members and the deceased parent. Implications are developed for grief education, the problems of only children and of people isolated from family, the importance of holidays in a family's coming to terms with loss, and therapeutic support of bereaved families.
