The Grieving Brain

What does grief do to our brain? Using an integrative view of clinical psychology and cognitive neuroscience, Mary-Frances O’Connor, PhD, author of The Grieving Brain, shares her decades of research on how our brain reacts to the loss of a loved one and how it adjusts to life without that person, shedding new light on the trajectory of grieving while dispelling popular, unscientific models of grief. In addition, Dr. O’Connor will address how empirical research (including neuroscience) has helped to define prolonged grief disorder and how targeted psychotherapy is an effective treatment for this disabling condition.
