The Soaring Spirits Resilience Center at Schreiner University is proud to showcase the publication of the Development of the Widowhood Resilience Scale by the Omega Journal of Death and Dying.
Drawing significant contributions from the fields of psychology, sociology, medicine, anthropology, law, education, history and literature, OMEGA has emerged as the most advanced and internationally recognized forum on the subject of death and dying. It serves as a reliable guide for clinicians, social workers, and health professionals who must deal with problems in crisis management, e.g., terminal illness, fatal accidents, catastrophe, suicide and bereavement.
Special thanks to Dr. Carrie West, Dr. Sam Dreeben, and Dr. Kyle Busing for their work on the development of the scale and the writing of this unique and valuable article.
We’d also like to thank every single widowed person who has participated in our surveys over the past five years. This work would not be possible without you.
This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by SAGE in OMEGA – Journal of Death and Dying on September 11, 2019. The article is available online at: https://doi.org/10.1177/
