Individuals who have experienced the loss of their same gender partner have been overlooked in bereavement literature. As such, measures of grief do not exist for individuals who have experienced a same gender partner loss. Additionally, microaggressions, or subtle forms of discrimination, experienced by same gender partners can complicate the grieving process potentially leading to increased mental health concerns for surviving partners. Therefore, a measure of perceived microaggressions related to same gender partner loss is being developed in order to address this gap in the research. This presentation will provide an overview of the process that a team of researchers used for the development and psychometric analysis of a scale titled Microaggressions and Same-Gender Partner Loss. Best practices and lessons learned will be discussed.
