Notes

Abstract: Experiencing the death of a parent is time-stopping, life-altering, and, most of all, hard to overcome. Each year a significant number of people undergo a tragedy that most do not know how to conquer. In the United States about 3.5% of children experience the loss of a parent (Mireault & Bond, 1992). This study will examine potential variables that arouse the motivation in individuals who have experienced the death of a parent. It will look at variables such as gender of the deceased parent, the quality of the child's relationship with the living parent, and the child's locus of control, resilience, valuing, and social support. A total of 50 individuals will be recruited into this project. All subjects must complete a voluntary consent form in order to participate in this study. Each participant will take the assessment and correlational analyses will be done to examine relationship among variables.
