Abstract

ペットを失ったことで悲しむ飼主に対し、日本では「ペットロス症候群」という名称が一部で用いられる。この表現には肯定的な立場をとる者もいれば否定的な立場をとる者もおり、それが受け容れうるものであるかどうか、想定される影響について判断する必要が生じている。本研究では、異なる3大学でそれぞれ医学、獣医学、文学を専攻する学生99名を対象とした自由記述式の質問紙調査を実施した。内容分析の手続きにより全13,475字の記述内容から142個の最小分析単位を抽出、4グループから成る18個のコードが生成された。このコードを基本的発想データ群としたKJ法の手続きにより、【命名の是非】は【病名の妥当性】と【病名の影響】から判断されるという構造が想定された。また、ペットの喪失に伴う【悲嘆への認識】は個々人で異なることがあり、それが【病名の妥当性】と【病名の影響】の双方に影響を及ぼす可能性が示唆された。

In Japan today, some use the term "pet-loss syndrome" to refer to the condition of the owners who are bereaved from death of their pets. However, it is controversial whether this term should be propelled to common usage. Investigation about issues of concern regarding this term is necessary to discuss the pros and cons of this expression. To collect as wide of a variety of ideas about the expression as possible, a total of 99 medical, veterinary and humanities students from three different universities were recruited for an open-ended questionnaire. By content analysis, 142 minimum units for analyzing were extracted from 13,475 characters written on the questionnaire. These units were organized into 18 codes classified in four groups. In order to establish a theory of terming, the KJ method was finally conducted by treating the codes as basic data for abduction. The constructed theory showed a basic concept that [pros and cons of terming "pet-loss syndrome"] were assessed by two factors: [validity of the disease name] and [influence from the disease name]. Furthermore, it was also assumed that [perception toward grief derived from pet loss] differed from person to person, which could affect these factors.
