This study examines the effect of social support on the adverse effects of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome stress. The effect of participation in the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome support group on the facilitation of the grief process is also examined. The data for this study were collected from personal interviews with 31 SIDS parents. The data are analyzed within a stress-buffer model of social support.
