The authors conducted a community-based sample of 261 parents bereaved by the violent deaths (i.e. accident, suicide, or homicide) of their 12- to 28-year old children. Parents were observed over time, & data were collected from several sources. The findings showed that of six individual, family, & community resources examined, none of the resources seemed to improve the parents’ outcomes either 1 or 5 years later. Implications of the findings are discussed. (39 refs)
