Abstract / Description

This chapter explores the ethical pitfalls inherent in the identity construction of 'grieving mothers' within a qualitative study of sudden, unexpected child death. Sudden, unexpected child death remains a taboo within western society and therefore parents, particularly mothers may be constructed within stereotypes of good and bad. The chapter draws on original research to explore the complexities of this, as well as advising on the process of institutional ethical review, where 'sensitive ' subjects and 'vulnerability' are involved.
