Abstract

This study examined the natural course of psychological functioning in recently bereaved middle-aged women. 69 widows were assessed four times (T-1-T-4) between the period of 3 to 13 mo, after the loss and were compared to amatched nonwidowed group of 57. Of the SCL-90 feelings of depression, agoraphobic behavior, anxiety, hostility, somatization, feelings of insufficiency, and sleep disorders were heightened at 4 mo. after bereavement comparedto the norm group. Significantly higher psychological dysfunctioning was found on all SCL-90 subscales than for non-widows. Over time, a decrease in psychological dysfunction was found for most widows: however, not every widow appeared to recover psychologically, and 17% of the widows showed severepsychological dysfunctioning at 13 mo. postbereavement (T-4). With respectto the predictive value of the Total score on the SCL-90, at 13 mo., 27% of these widows had scores indicating severe psychological dysfunctioning; these were comparable to their scares at 4 mo. postbereavement.
