When Parents Die Phyllis R. Silverman
Pages 16

This chapter describes some of the factors to consider in understand-ing children's reactions to the death of a parent. Any intervention that might be offered to help bereaved children and their families needs to be responsive to these realities in the bereaved child's world. We need to match any help offered to what the bereaved are actually experiencing, to their resources, and to the social context in which they are living.
