中文摘要 喪偶是人生中最大壓力事件之一,對於人的生理、心理及社會層面造成負向影響。越來越多男性在晚年喪偶,部分原因來自預期壽命變長。社會關係可以緩衝喪偶引發的孤獨感、社會孤立及降低疾病發生,然而高齡男性在喪偶後的社會支持比女性少,社交互動意願也較低。因此本研究欲探索社會關係,即社會網絡與社會支持,在喪偶三年內的高齡男性之生活適應樣貌,包含喪偶後面臨的生活適應問題為何、社會關係特徵與及需求以及社會關係在其生活適應上的支持經驗。
英文摘要 Widowhood is one of the most stressful events in life which has negative consequences in the physical, psychological and social aspects. Social relationships can buffer loneliness, social isolation caused by widowhood and reduce illness. However, elderly men have less social support and social interaction after widowhood than women .Therefore, this study intends to explore social relationships to adapt to the life of elderly widowers within three years of widowhood.
This is a qualitative study and inclusion criteria is men over the age of 65 who were widowed within three years. Thirteen participants were interviewed in this study. This study found that:(1)The social relationships of elderly widowers have cohort differences.(2)Children and daughter-in-law are the main providers of social support.(3)Developing interdependent social relationships of elderly widowers bring stable and long-lasting social connections, and helping to restore the adaptation of life after widowhood. The findings illustrate that the elderly widowers need to have more interaction with younger people and create a two-way interpersonal interaction with elderly widowers, giving them opportunity to demonstrate self-worth in order to build up good social relationships and avoid social isolation.
