AbstractContrary to the belief that the Chinese do not share emotionally intense experiences, findings from a cross-sectional study of 292 respondents who lost either a spouse or a parent in the previous 2 years in Hong Kong indicated that only 10% did not share their bereavement experiences with another person. The physical health and emotional state of non-sharers was found to be no different to those who shared. In addition, the Chinese are believed to limit their social sharing of personal experiences to family members only. In our study, we found that for those who shared, the persons they shared most with were their best friends, siblings, and professionals. Non-family members are clearly eligible "sharees" for Chinese people. Differences in the reactions of sharees in good and bad sharing experiences were identified. Based on these findings, implications for bereavement care for Chinese are delineated.
