Brief Interventions with Bereaved Children

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the importance of social contexts and looks at a number of available examples of research evidence. These evidences are rooted in particular cultural understandings and empirical work that are based in New World and European societies. One reason why social contexts are important in understanding bereavement is that the lives of young people are embedded in networks of relationships, circumstances, and social contexts. Thus, full attention should be given to such cultural and social issues to attain a high level of understanding of a child's bereavement experiences.

Keywords:   social contexts, research evidence, bereavement, cultural understandings, empirical work, understanding, network of relationships, circumstances
