Research

My research examines various facets of death, loss, and bereavement. While attempting to better understand both the universal, and unique experiences of loss, there is an specific emphasis on ways of maintaining wellness and resiliency amidst adversity.  Current research interests include:

  • BEREAVEMENT EXPERIENCES of Canadian university students
  • MEDICAL ASSISTANCE in DYING and the experiences of nurse practitioners involved with MAiD
  • CREATIVE INTERVENTIONS with the bereaved
THE LOSS LAB
The Loss Lab will get underway in September 2019 and will be comprised of 6 students who are interested in gaining hands on research experience as well as insight into the application of thanatological research.
