Sammanfattning

The death of a child has been recognized as the most devastating loss an individual may experience in life, leaving the grieving parents with a life-long process of adaptation to the trauma. In societies where death is a near-taboo, implicit norms require mourning to be limited both in expression and duration. This reduces possibilities for coping with the situation, and bereaved parents experience a lack of support and understanding both from health care and in their everyday life. However, the affordances of mobile technologies and social media offer bereaved parents new possibilities for support in their process of adapting to the loss of a child. Based on surveys and interviews with members and moderators in a closed community on Facebook, this study shows that the possibility of “high quality emergency response” through instant access to peers available through social media and mobile technologies is of vital importance to grieving parents.
