My father died when I was 13 years old. Ever since, I have wondered about the long-term effects such a terrible loss might have on a person. I am now a fourth year Clinical Psychology PhD student in New York City and I am excited that I have been able to turn this topic into a meaningful dissertation study. It is one way in which I feel I am keeping my dad's memory alive.

If you meet criteria below, please take my survey! Please also share the link with anyone who might be interested. Your participation will be anonymous and you will also have a chance to enter into a raffle to win one of three $50 Amazon gift cards.

1. Are you currently 18 years or older and fluent in English?
2. Have you ever been romantically involved with someone?
3. Have you experienced the death of your biological mother or father before the age of 17?
4. If yes, were your biological mother and father married or living together prior to the death?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, please click the link below:

You can also email me if you are interested in hearing about the results after the study is complete. I am happy to share my findings!

Thank you so much.

I'd be interested in your findings. My father was 13 when he watched his father die in 1961, and watched his mother freak out. Then he had to watch his older sisters freak out when they got home. I apologize for the use of the term freak out, it's the only thing I can think of to describe the stories I heard. My father lived another 50 years, dealing with the aftermath of his mother and sisters' emotional hysteria.

I would have taken the survey, but my mother died of cancer while I was in college. I was 21. It alyered my life, and not in a good way.

I heard a speaker say that anyone who loses a same sex parent before THIRTY FIVE - will experience significant difficulties as they enter their teens, young adulthood and early adulthood.

From what i have observed, this seems true.
