Abstract / Description

This article charts the isolation that parents may experience following a sudden, unexpected child death, or other similarly 'taboo' bereavement and situates this within wider cultural taboos around dying. The article discusses research into such areas as potentially 'dangerous knowledge' and concludes with a discussion of how this form of investigation may become separated from original research and therefore practice knowledge.
