This project will investigate the relationship between Prolonged Grief Disorder and its symptomatic components in parents after the death of their infant or young child from sudden infant death syndrome and sudden unexplained death in childhood, and the self-efficacy and confidence they feel as parents to their other children. The student will potentially recruit, administer standardized surveys, analyze, and develop a manuscript for publication. Depending on their interest, the student may also participate in Robert's Program on Sudden Unexpected Death in Pediatrics, a multidisciplinary translational program the pursues diagnoses in these unexplained deaths.

Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
