|Title:||Survivors' Narratives of the Impact of Parental Suicide||Contributor(s):||Ratnarajah, Dorothy (author); Schofield, Margot Jocelyn (author)||Publication Date:||2008||DOI:||10.1521/suli.2008.38.5.618||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/6925||Abstract:||The impact of parental suicide on surviving children and their family system has received inadequate research attention. Using a qualitative narrative methodology with thematic analysis, we explored the short-term and lifelong impact of parental suicide among 10 adults who, as children or adolescents, had lost a parent through suicide. The suicide triggered a wide range of structural and relational changes to the family, resulting in a cascading series of negative outcomes. These systemic issues are discussed and recommendations made about support structures for bereaved children and their families. Limitations of the study are discussed and future research directions identified.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, 38(5), p. 618-630||Publisher:||Guildford Press||Place of Publication:||New York, United States of America||ISSN:||1943-278X
