Explain the psychological effect of the death of a parent on the bereaved adult

The analysis section

Descriptive analysis should be carried out on the data collected using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS); the participants’ age should be presented using mean and standard deviation values, with the scores relating to type of relationship also being reported using frequencies and percentages. The TTBQ2-70 (two-track bereavement questionnaire; Rubin et al., 2011), generates an overall score, thus providing interval-level data and enabling parametric analysis. To assess the impact of loss, participants should be compared by gender using an independent-samples t-test. A Pearson correlation should be utilised to explore the relationship between the type of relationship and the impact of loss. An additional Pearson correlation should explore the association between age and impact of loss.
