아동의 죽음불안 감소를 위한 죽음대비교육의 효과
Effectiveness of Death Education on the Reduction of Children's Death Anxiety
Eun Young Nahm,Yeon Zip Chang
This study examined children`s death anxiety by religion, previous death experience and the effectiveness of a death education program. Half of the subjects 60 nine-year-old elementary school subjects were assigned to the experimental group and half were assigned to the control group. The 6-week death education program for the experimental group included literature, role play, and discussion. A questionnaire and death anxiety scale for children were administered to all subjects. After the educational program, there was a significant difference in death anxiety scores , between the experimental and control groups. However, children`s religion and previous experience with death had no significant relationship to their death anxiety or effectiveness of the death education program.
