Back to Business on Children's Grief

September 14th, 2010 by judytalks

I never take a complete vacation from my work with grief, loss and recovery. However, summer is a time for family and relaxation. Summer is over, and my attention again turns to research studies on these important topics. I frequently use the online library resources because there is access to papers, studies, and documents not found in the physical library.
My most recent research turned up information concerning the sense of isolation children feel following the death of a parent. In a paper by Ribbons McCarthy 2006 the fact of isolation within family relationships was cited. Often, the surviving parent is unable to support their children because of their own grief.
A solution to this problem lies in our understanding as a society of what we can do to give genuine comfort while those in mourning deal with their situation. It takes a little time and a commitment to someone’s wellbeing, but the long term benefits are enormous. Happy, healthy children and stable, secure adults is a logical goal for an intelligent society. We can learn better methods for helping each other through one of life’s inevitable occurrences.
