Event description

Description

New developments in bereavement research are expanding our understanding of what it means to be bereaved and what can help in times of grief. Researchers, practitioners and policy-makers need to share insights and generate ideas together to make sure that research informs practice, and that practice helps to identify the next questions we need to answer with research.

Join us for a day of learning and networking for bereavement researchers and practitioners, with a focus on Carers and Bereavement. The seminar will be a chance for bereavement researchers to share their findings with practitioners, and for practitioners to help shape the future of bereavement research, across sociology, psychology and other disciplines.

Presentations will include:

  • Helping carers identify the support they need using the Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT) Dr Gail Ewing
  • The bereavement experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or trans people who have lost a partner Dr Steve Marshall and Dr Katherine Bristowe
  • Examining preparation for end of life and grief before death amongst family carers of people with dementia Dr Kirsten Moore

Attendees at our last meeting said

‘Strong focus on bereavement research from planning, design, delivery & results. A small number of speakers who could share their research in depth was great’.

‘Some very helpful practical advice for research and inspirational ideas. Varied yet complementary topics.’

Tea, coffee and networking from 10.15am; programme begins 10.30am. A sandwich lunch will be provided. Places are limited. We hope very much that you can join us.
