Clinical Intervention for Bereaved Children:
“Five percent of children in the United States (about 1.5 million) lose one or both parents by age 15 (Krupnick, 1984), and the literature clearly suggests that children who have experienced the death of a parent are at higher risk for psychiatric, medical and behavioral consequences than children who have not experienced such a loss (Black 1974; Kaffman and Elizur, 1983; Kliman, 1980; Rutter, 1966). Despite the prevalence and significance of the problem of childhood bereavement, little has been written about preventive intervention strategies that may positively facilitate a child’s adaptation to parental loss. In fact, there is a tendency to use adult models of bereavement to explain childhood grief reactions. This can lead to confusion and misunderstanding about the grieving process of children.” Elizabeth Clark
