Chapter 9: Accidents and Traumatic Loss: The Adolescent Experience

The leading causes of death in adolescence are accidents, suicide, and homicide. Illene Cupit and Karissa Meyer begin by reviewing the impact of accidents on adolescents. They root the effects of an accidental death both in the interanl and external worlds of adolescence. Cupit and Meyer explore both the deaths of family and of friends, emphasizing that those reactions are similar. As the authors comment, such a result is not unusual given the strong role that peers play in adolescent life.
