Innovative Research

We developed and tested a highly effective short-term therapy for complicated grief. Our research has advanced knowledge about complicated grief after different kinds of losses and in people of different ages and backgrounds.  Our results have been published in major medical journals such as the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine.
