A TWO‐TRACK MODEL OF BEREAVEMENT: Theory and Application in Research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Much remains to be learned about the long‐term effects of adult bereavement. A two‐track model, considering both affective attachment to the deceased and extent of personality change, is used in the present study to examine aspects of the maternal reaction to sudden infant death. It is suggested that this two‐track perspective offers greater specificity in studying the nature and duration of the effects of loss. 1981 American Orthopsychiatric Association
