Abstract

Although there is a considerable body of knowledge regarding adolescent grief, little research has focused on adolescents' perceptions and experiences of death and grief from those who are not currently in thebereavement process. Thirty-two adolescents between the ages of 13 to18 were interviewed about their experiences of death and loss. Nineteen of the subjects attended suburban public high school, while 13 resided in a facility for adjudicated urban youth. Findings indicated thatsubjects were aware of death by age nine. In this sample, urban adolescents' perception of death involved reference to violence (25%) or religion (16.6%) in contrast to the suburban youths who referred less frequently to violence (0%) and religion (5.3%). The most distasteful aspect of death to the suburban students was suffering (31.6%), while itwas loss of loved ones to the adjudicated youths (25%). Since talkingand listening as comforting strategies were used by both groups (66.7%), background environment must be considered when examining adolescents' experiences and perceptions of death.
