Chapter 4: Adolescents Coping with Parental Death

Adolescents, of course, do experience death. J. William Worden considers the effects of parental loss on the adolescent summarizing results from the influential Harvard Child Bereavement Study where he was one of the principle investigators. Worden makes a number of cogent points that have clinical importance. Chief among these is that often the effects on the adolescent may not be evident until the second year. Worden notes that one of the best predictors of adolescent outcomes is how well the surviving parent functions, thus emphasizing the importance of family-based therapy (Haynes, Ayers, Sandler, & Kolchak 2008).
