Research into how the 'type' of sibling death impacts surviving siblings at a social level was conducted using a semi-structured interview format with 25 bereaved siblings and seven counsellors. The results indicated that in cases where a sibling's death had a greater impact within public spheres, the young adult was more likely to receive beneficial social support than young adults associated with 'private' death examples. The paper concludes by outlining how individuals can provide effective support for bereaved young adults, as well as avoid unhelpful support behaviours.
