Abstract: To reduce response burden for bereaved children and adolescents, we provide data on the development and psychometric testing of a short form of the Hogan Sibling Inventory of Bereavement (HSIB). The resulting measure of grief symptoms and personal growth was renamed the Hogan Inventory of Bereavement - Short Form (Children and Adolescents; HIB-SF-CA). Psychometric properties were evaluated in a sample of 86 bereaved siblings. Instrument development and validation research design methods were used. Evidence of strong reliability and convergent validity indicates that the 21-item HIB-SF-CA is comparable to the original 46-item HSIB in measuring grief and personal growth in this population.
