In this session, pioneering bereavement researcher Dr Linda Machin will talk about the Range of Response to Loss (RRL) model – a paradigm for exploring vulnerability and resilience in people facing bereavement and other life losses.
Attention to resilience as well as vulnerability gives recognition to the human capacity to cope with adversity and tragedy and to emerge changed but strengthened. The RRL is a theoretical model developed from Dr Machin’s years of research and practice as a Medical Social Worker, Bereavement Counselling trainer and academic specialising in bereavement.
Dr Machin’s talk will be followed by a Q&A.
