Spousal Bereavement Study

Posted in: CB9M - Community Board 9 Manhattan
The PURL Study, A Project to Understand Reactions to Loss is recruiting persons in diverse communities who are younger than 65 years of age and who have lost a spouse within 1 ?½ to 3 years ago.

Participants are required to come to Teachers College on two separate occasions each for 2 hours. These visits are within a month of each other.

The Project to Understand Reactions to Loss is headed by George A. Bonanno, Ph.D. The Project Director is Anthony D. Mancini, Ph.D.

What are the advantages of participating in this study? We offer a modest financial benefit. Participants are paid $200 for the interviews and computer tasks. In addition, participants leave our study with the knowledge that they have shared their experiences with trained researchers who are working to learn more about the grieving process. In this way, participants will know that they have contributed to our knowledge about how people grieve, and hopefully to the development of new interventions that can help alleviate the suffering of others who have experienced a loss.
