Notes

Abstract: Previous research (Cicerelli, 2002) has examined fear of death, death anxiety and death attitudes in younger adults and the elderly using factors suggested by terror management theory. This research has shown that many factors such as age, environment and experience affect the level of these death fears. The rationale behind this exploratory study is that a more specific environment may lead to vastly different results than have been obtained in the more general research. The present study sought to build on the previous work by addressing the death fears of more specific populations, in this case college students and nursing home patients and comparing the two groups using three standardized scales the Revised Collett-Lester Fear of Death Scale (1994), the Revised Death Attitude Profile (1994) and the Death Anxiety Questionnaire (1982). Findings of this study tend some support to terror management theory, dual-processing theory, Maslow's hierarchy of needs and Erikson's stages of psychosocial development, which have implications for a focus on a multi-method approach.
