AbstractThe DPM-based intervention applied in the US appears to be promising for Chinese bereaved spouses. A focus group was arranged with clinicians working with bereaved persons to examine the feasibility of adopting the intervention model in Hong Kong. Ideas about adjustments in the content and the length and the patterns of oscillation between loss-oriented (LO) and restoration-oriented (RO) components of the intervention were collected. Specifically, some of the proposed restoration-oriented (RO) components of the intervention such as finances, legal issues and vehicle responsibilities are found to be irrelevant among Chinese. Instead, health issues, cooking and handling relationships are identified as major challenges in the RO dimension. An eight-session model is perceived to be more acceptable than the original 14-session one. Moreover, oscillations between RO and LO components within a session are proposed.
