Abstract

In this commentary, we highlight the availability of two newly developed instruments that measure grief in adolescents. We present similarities and differences regarding their content, factor structure, and characteristics of the validated populations. Given the small body of adolescent grief instruments, these two new scales will prove to be useful instruments to enhance our knowledge of grief and effectiveness of grief interventions in this population.
