Abstract
  • The purpose of this investigation was to utilize theoretical, methodological, and empirical approaches to address the lack of understanding of ambiguous loss and boundary ambiguity in emerging adults who grew up with depressed parents. Three papers framed by an exploration of the problem and conclusions examined the adequacy of two theories in explaining the phenomena associated with growing up with a parent with depression, the strengths and limitations of retrospective self-report as a method of data collection, and the results of an empirical study examining factors that might influence the psychosocial well-being of young or emerging adults who grew up with a depressed parent. Implications for nursing research and practice are also presented.
