Summary
"Drawing on her own research, in-depth interviews, and data collection nationwide, Dr. Debra Umberson explores the social and psychological factors that determine how this important loss will affect us - as a personal crisis or an opportunity for healthy change. Her book shows how adults, far from the "finished" beings we are often assumed to be, can be profoundly transformed by the death of a parent - in beliefs, behavior, goals, sense of self - transformed in ways that will continue to affect us, for better or worse, for the rest of our lives."--BOOK JACKET
