"Men were selected for the study because men’s stories of loss go mostly untold. The purpose of the study was to  give voice to their experiences and examine the themes that emerged about the effects and impact of that death on their lives."

Background: Rear Admiral Darold Bigger is the Deputy Chief of Chaplains for Total Force of the US Naval Reserve.
In 1996, his oldest daughter, Shannon, then 25, was murdered in her apartment in the suburbs of DC.

WWC HOLDS FACULTY INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLOQUIUM ON CHILD LOSS

WWC will hold a colloquium:
"When a Father Loses a Child:    The Lived Experience of Managing Loss and Change"

Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. in Chan Shun Pavilion 154, Murdock Lecture Hall.
100 SW 4th St., College Place, Washington.

This Faculty Interdisciplinary Colloquium will be presented by Fred Troutman, associate professor of nursing at WWC’s Portland campus. Attending as respondents will be Darold Bigger, professor of religion and social work, and Pamela Keele Cress, associate professor of social work. The colloquium is based on research conducted by professor Troutman for his doctoral dissertation. Troutman received his doctorate from the Fielding Institute in 2003.

Troutman’s study for his dissertation investigated the experience of fathers who have undergone the loss of a child at least five years prior. Men were selected for the study because men’s stories of loss go mostly untold. The purpose of the study was to give voice to their experiences and examine the themes that emerged about the effects and impact of that death on their lives.
