The Ripples of Death

Exploring the Bereavement Experiences and Mental Health of Young Men in Custody

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Bereavement is an inevitable part of life and predictably forms a common childhood experience, with the bereavement rate among UK children estimated to be between 43% (Highet and Jamieson, 2007) and 78% (Harrison and Harrington, 2001). Previous research indicates that young people involved in offending are more likely to experience multiple, traumatic or parental bereavements than the general adolescent population (Vaswani, 2008). In turn, traumatic and multiple bereavements are linked with a significantly increased risk of depression; and comorbidity (Dowdney, 2000); as well as negative outcomes in relation to education, self-esteem and risk-taking behaviour (Ribbens McCarthy, 2005). As such, issues around grief and loss may further disadvantage an already vulnerable group in terms of outcomes and mental health.
