This event is part of Good Grief Bristol, A Festival of Love and Loss. 11-17 May 2020 (https://goodgriefbristol.com/).
This session will cover two topics.
1) Gender and Grief, with Dr Mark Taubert
In 'Gender and Grief', palliative medicine doctor Dr Mark Taubert will draw on his personal observations from years of clinical practice to discuss types of grief. Psychologists suggest that over forty different factors form a complex network for each unique grieving episode, and that an individual’s grief process is as unique as their finger-print on the spectrum between intuitive and instrumental grief. Mark will explore how grief is influenced by gender, rather than determined by it.
2) Grief in Afro-Caribbean Communities, with Anndeloris Chacon
The second session will consider grief in Afro-Caribbean communities. It will be presented by Anndeloris Chacon, from the Bristol Black Carers charity. Anndeloris will draw on her decades of experience working with and supporting Afro-Caribbean communities in Bristol to explore grief in other cultures.
