The Grieving Brain: The Surprising Science of How We Learn from Love and Loss

October 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for a free virtual education session: The Grieving Brain: The Surprising Science of How We Learn from Love and Loss, presented by Mary Frances O’Connor, renowned grief expert, neuroscientist, and psychologist.

This event is part of our 2022 Virtual Conference Series: Mortal Curiosity, sponsored by The Connie Hillman Family Foundation.

Loss of a loved one is something everyone experiences, and for as long as humans have existed, we have struggled when a loved one dies. Poets and playwrights have written about the dark cloak of grief, the deep yearning, and devastating heartache of loss. But until now, we have had little scientific perspective on this universal experience.  Join us as we hear from author, Mary Frances O’Connor, renowned grief expert, neuroscientist, and psychologist talk about her new book, The Grieving Brain: The Surprising Science of How We Learn from Love and Loss; and learn what happens in our brain when we grieve.
