Grief and Grieving Through a Multi-Disciplinary Lens
November 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us as we hear from Dr. Mary-Frances O’Connor on her lecture, “Grief and Grieving Through a Multi-Disciplinary Lens.” O’Connor is an associate professor of psychology at the University of Arizona, where she directs the Grief, Loss and Social Stress (GLASS) Laboratory, and is the author of the recently published book, The Grieving Brain.
In her presentation, Dr. O’Connor will share how she is using an integrative view of psychology, neuroscience, and immunology to curate findings that are profoundly impacting the multi-disciplinary field of bereavement research and shaping its development. Her talk will culminate in addressing personal and clinical considerations that participants can integrate into their own circumstances and roles.
The event is in memory of James Wake, late husband of former Marquette Provost Dr. Madeline Wake. James Wake’s career was devoted to helping others through social work and chaplaincy.
