In an extension of Bowlby’s (1980) disordered variants of childhood grief, the authors propose behavioural & thought manifestations in adult survivors of early bereavement as indicators of unresolved grief. Variants studied include persistent anxiety, desire to die, persistent blame & guilt, compulsive self-reliance, & agressive outburts. Topics needing further research using appropriate methodological controls are discussed. (39 refs.)
