The authors state that if childhood responses to bereavement become pathological in adulthood, it is essential that these early responses are studied & strategies developed for prevention. In an attempt to determine where reactions become problematic, 18 children (aged 4-17) were interviewed. 3 typical case histories are examined and common findings are discussed. The authors hope to begin longitudinal studies of these children to monitor their anniversary reactions in adulthood.(NBB)
