The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of age, marital status, occupational characteristics, and length of time since death on the coping processes and grief responses and the relationship between grief responses and coping processes of 30 mothers using the Grief Experience Inventory (GEl) and the Ways of Coping Questionnaire (WCQ). The respondents, who ranged in age between 27- 64, were either married, single, worked in the home or outside of the home, and were experiencing grief from 1 month to 8 years. The variables used were age, marital status, occupational status, and length of time since death. T-tests and the Pearson Product-Moment Correlation were computed for each of the variables.
