Summary or Abstract : By the age of 18, 1 in 20 children will experience a parent's death. Parental loss is one of the most traumatic events that may occur in childhood. One purpose of this exploratory research was to analyze the extent to which the utilization of interventions during the acute phase of bereavement (13 months) lessened the symptoms of psychopathology in 265 parentally bereaved children from 5 to 18 years of age who participated in a federally funded Longitudinal Grief Research Study. In addition, this study examined whether or not parent utilization of interventions lessened the symptoms of psychopathology for the bereaved children.This study was based on data from months 1 and 13 of the original data set that was collected between 1989 and 1996. Descriptive statistics were used to examine the characteristics of the bereaved sample, the utilization of the interventions, the helpfulness of the interventions, and the symptoms of psychopathology as measured by the BAMO scale (behavior, anxiety, mood, and other disorders) and reports from children and parents. Bivariate analysis was used to test nine null hypotheses on the impact of six types of interventions on BAMO scores. The mediating variables of age group, type of death, and type of bereavement were controlled. Multivariate statistical analyses were conducted to determine whether the statistically significant bivariate relationships were maintained when entered into logistic regressive analyses.There were three major findings. (1) the majority of the bereaved sample reported few symptoms that are indicative of psychopathology, (2) most of the bereaved sample did not utilize interventions, and (3) those who did utilize interventions found them to be helpful.Further research is needed to study the efficacy of various treatment modalities for improving the well-being and adjustment of bereaved children. Research on practice principles and the validity of theoretical assumptions that guide practice with diverse cultural groups appear needed. Phenomenological research might be completed to better understand the childhood meaning of death. Other theories such as attachment, resiliency, and stress might be examined..
