Description

The death of a child is felt by extended family, friends, and community members. Most bereavement care research focuses on programs for parents. Little is known about the efficacy of support programs for other grieving individuals. We conducted a scoping review of the literature describing the efficacy of bereavement support programs for siblings, extended family (other than parents), and community members after pediatric death. We found only four reports describing the efficacy of bereavement support programs for this population. All articles described benefits of the intervention studied. Overall, more rigorous and larger-scale studies are needed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
