Loss and grief have been areas of research, writing, and practice for Lorraine Mangione. She will be offering a full-day workshop at Rhode Island Psychological Association entitled Navigating through Loss and Grief: Meaning Making along the Journey on March 1st in Warwick, Rhode Island. She will be doing a similar half-day workshop for the Maine Psychological Association in June in Portland, Maine. While most of what she is presenting involves the very rich current literature on grief and loss theory and practices and encouraging participants to find their own voice and path in this work, she will also use some of her research and practice as examples. Some of what she will present comes from the research she did with Dr. Donna DiCello with the help of then student Megan Lyons, now Dr. Megan Lyons, and a bit of that work can be seen in this recent newspaper article out of Pittsburgh.
Another part of the workshop will relate to the women’s group she has done with her colleague Roz Forti which is described in this article.
