For this session we are delighted to be joined by Professor Margaret Stroebe, a world-leading bereavement researcher based in the Netherlands. Professor Stroebe will be discussing the Dual Process Model of Coping with Bereavement (DPM), a framework to help understand reactions to the death of a loved one.
Are the patterns of grief and grieving described in the DPM applicable in other cultural settings? How might our understanding of the nature of grief be enhanced by considering cultural differences, for example regarding the meaning of loss? In her talk, Professor Stroebe will outline the parameters of the DPM research, providing insight into questions of cultural relevance and answering questions from the floor.
Originally conceptualised by Professors Margaret Stroebe and Henk Schut (both researchers schooled in Western traditions) in 1999, the DPM framework has since been further developed, applied and tested by other researchers internationally.
