Show Summary Details


This chapter describes the sample of children and families, the methods used in the qualitative analyses, and the model of outcome derived from the analyses. The 88 families described in this book included 157 children who were 3 to 17 years old when one of their parents died from cancer. Fifty-one fathers and 37 mothers received treatment for advanced cancer at Memorial Sloan-–Kettering Cancer Center. All but one of these families participated in a psychoeducational intervention program that was intended to help families cope with the death of one parent. This intervention was also designed to generate data that would inform through quantitative and qualitative analyses.

Keywords: children; families; intervention; bereavement outcome model; death; parents
