Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to examine in the narrative format the writer's response to the traumatic death of her cousin. The narrative explained how the writer's sense of self matured through the various stages of grief and coping strategies. Literature was reviewed on the topics of grief and coping styles. A discussion of the writer's experience in developing her own narrative was provided. Social work implications were discussed. Potential implications for child welfare and future areas of research were also discussed.
