Abstract

Grieving is a highly personalized experience that differs from person to person. Typically, reactions to grief do not have a certain ending point or course. Thus, the time spent and method of grieving varies. Bereavement is the state of dealing with a significant loss. (M.S. Stroebe, Hansson, Schut, & Stroebe, 2008). Although evidence suggests that there are significant differences in the bereavement of older and younger adults, few studies have been done focusing solely on the differences. The purpose of this project was to examine the differences in negative emotions, affective complexity, and repressive coping, between bereaved younger and older adults.
