  • The Self and Significant Others: Toward a Sociology of Loss
    • Authors: Jakoby; N. R.
      Pages: 129 - 174
      Abstract: Losses are part of the human condition. And these losses are multifaceted—as diverse as human bonds can be. In this article, I review and analyze the diversity of loss experiences and the notion of loss of self. A sociology of loss illuminates the universes of meaning that refer to person/person, person/animal, or person/object relations and involve different kinds of losses that can be grieved. It also broaches the issue of the social regulation of losses and specific loss norms. Finally, I will present a general model that integrates the various perspectives on loss.

  • Understanding Bankruptcy: How Members of a Bankrupted Bank Construe
           Organizational Death
    • Authors: Gerstrom, A; Isabella, L. A.
      Pages: 129 - 174
      Abstract: Bankruptcies are becoming more and more prevalent, partly as a consequence of business conditions created by the financial crisis characterizing the beginning of the 21st century. Nonetheless, knowledge on the phenomenon of bankruptcy from the point of view of the people who undergo it is scant. Knowledge on how members undergoing bankruptcy construe and make sense of their narrations of organizational death is important because when organizations die, members live on and in their afterlife their past forms and guides their present and future. In this inductive study, we focus on a small and local bank that went bankrupt as a consequence of the large and global crisis. Based on narrative interviews with 20 organizational members' the article offers a model that theorizes bankruptcy as a series of unfolding events that change a work world. Members narrate their immediate experience as a work world deconstruction and their subsequent response as a work world reconstruction. Inherent in every event is a loss and a transformation that members need to accept and go through in order to move forward. Members solve these challenges by comprehending the situation and justifying their response. The article matters for theorists researching the understudied but relevant issue of organizational death and practitioners struggling with the increasing but troubling problems of corporate bankruptcy. At the end of the article, avenues for further research are outlined.

  • Parental Grief Expression in Online Cancer Support Groups
    • Authors: Elder, J; Burke, L. A.
      Pages: 175 - 190
      Abstract: Few studies exist on the benefits of online grief support for bereaved parents. We sought to learn from parents who lost a child to a brain or spinal cord tumor who participated in an online grief-support group. Eighteen bereaved parents and two professional facilitators participated in 20 monthly online groups, with chat room discussions analyzed for themes. Parents completed a 10-item survey evaluating reasons for participation and the group's effectiveness regarding coping following loss. Examples of chat room topics included the grief process or adjustment, negative social interactions, milestones or holidays, and sibling grief. Seventy-eight percent of eligible parents completed the survey. They endorsed online groups as effective for connecting with other bereaved parents and offering grief support, among other positive outcomes. Parents used online groups for a variety of reasons, including convenience, anonymity, and lack of local support. Parents' responses suggest that online support groups can be a convenient or effective grief-coping strategy for parents bereaved by cancer.

  • Doubts and Fears: An Exploration
    • Authors: Eng; H.
      Pages: 192 - 197
      Abstract: This submission is meant to explore the care giver's concerns with respect to her husband's Parkinson's Disease and her role as the care giver in a long term marriage. As every relationship is tested through time and circumstance, the author's writing attempts to articulate the self-reflective concerns she has regarding her husband's disease and what it means to her life going forward in the relationship. The excerpt from her journals is a snapshot from her writings prior to his passing. Predominantly, the article explores her doubts and fears with respect to her own strength and ability to come to terms with the disease and her having lived with his diagnosis for 17 years. The sudden and unexpected passing of her husband in April 2014 catapulted her into the hitherto unforeseen position of being a widow. The poem "Not Yet" explores the sense of dislocation and "unpreparedness" for this new psychological and emotional state of this sudden singularity.
