UntitledSee here for a recent study by ISEPP’s Joanne Cacciatore on the effects of poverty and parental education on the experience of bereaved mothers. Her study is the first to investigate poverty, education, and parental bereavement while examining the relative risk of other variables as informed by the literature. The findings reveal that poverty was the strongest predictor of psychological distress when compared to others factors which have traditionally been considered significant in parental bereavement. Bereaved parents living in poverty may be less likely to seek support and have fewer available resources.
