Abstract

A preventive intervention for 156 bereaved parents whose 12- to 28-year-old children died by accident, homicide, or suicide was tested using a multisite longitudinal cohort pretest/posttest experimental design. Reported here are bereaved parents' evaluations of the two-dimensional support program. Problem-focused support was rated by parents' perceptions of readiness, relevance, timing, and understanding of the information and skills presented. Emotion-focused support was rated by the identification of I. Yalom's (1985) therapeutic group factors and group leader/clinician support. Over 70% of all the person/session responses showed that both support dimensions were rated at 6 or 7 on a 7-point scale (e.g., 0 = not at all relevant, 7 = very relevant.) Additional exploratory analyses examined the extent to which 5 participant and treatment characteristics influenced parents' evaluations. Clinical implications and future research directions are suggested.
