Assisting Bereaved College Students
Overview
Research indicates that rather than an isolated incident experienced by only a few college students, bereavement is a life transition or crisis faced by a significant share of the campus population at any given time. Death loss experiences and subsequent grief reactions have the strong potential to affect the functioning and overall development of bereaved students.
This sourcebook brings together perspectives from the fields of higher education and thanatology (the study of death and dying) to provide a mix of theoretical, research, and practice perspectives for coping with death and bereavement on campus.

The initial chapters move from a macro-level focus on the prevalence of bereaverment on campus to theoretical and empirical approaches for understanding how students cope with death and then to practical approaches for supporting and assisting bereaved students. The volume then explores administrative responses to death, including issues of suicide, death notification, and practical guidance in the aftermath of student death.

Death is a fact of life college students, whether they are traditional-age or adult learners, undergraduates or graduate students, full-time or part-time students, or on-campus residents or commuters. Members of the higher education community need to be ready to respond when death touches the lives of students to provide support and assistance.

Of course, institutions have unique characteristics, and the composition of student populations differs widely. The materials and guidelines presented in this volume should be considered in light of these contextual factors. With this in mind, the editors have created a sourcebook that provides useful guidance for a caring response.
