Abstract

The purpose of this research was to develop and test a health promotion intervention designed to minimise unhealthy adolescent grief reactions. A sample of Western Australian adolescents were consulted to identify their perceptions regarding the causes of grief for adolescents, the means by which they manage grief, their perceptions of what constitutes healthy and unhealthy grieving, and the risks associated with unhealthy grieving and the type of grief-management intervention they preferred.
