Social support and psychological well-being as possible complicated grief level predictor in a grief population sample
Objective: To analyze the variations in complicated grief (CG) through sociodemograohic and functioning well variable: psychologycal well-beIng (PW), received social support (RSC) and satisfaction with the social support (SRSC).
Method: transversal study, n= 110 people sample who arrive to a free grief listening centre through an ad hoc questionnaire including sociodemographic variables, complicated grief level according to Prigerson Inventory of Complicated Grief (ICG), well- being according to Well-being Ryff´s Questionnaire and Sarason Questionnaire to social support measure. Descriptive and correlational (Pearson) analyses executed. Also, step by step backward multiple regression analyse.
Results: Averaged CG 44.91, PW 119.23, RSC 10.56 people, SRSC 13.48. Predictive CG variables were: CG, PW, RSC, SRSC, postloss moths, pharmacological help received and parents relationship. Adjusted R-squared 42.4%.Conclusions: PW and satisfactory RSC could be considered CG level predictors. Recommendation is to study depressive symptoms, to clarify the influence in RSC perception. This study contributes to increase the centre efficiency, so that functioning well variables are able to predict CG level
