Dr. Pauline Boss will present “Ambiguous Loss: Why Closure is a Myth” on Feb. 21, 2014, from noon-1:30 p.m. in the OSU-Tulsa Auditorium. Her presentation is part of Oklahoma State University’s Research Week, which takes place February 17-21.
The Bryan Close Professorship in Adulthood and Aging in the College of Human Sciences is making Boss’ presentation possible. Lunch will be provided by the OSU Center for Health Sciences and the Center for Family Resilience on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“I am absolutely delighted Dr. Pauline Boss will be able to share her expertise during OSU’s Research Week,” Whitney Bailey, Bryan Close Professor, said.
“Her work is internationally known and has reached countless individuals and practitioners in the area of family crisis and complex losses. This presentation will be meaningful to those interested in grief, dementia, traumatic brain injury, or other circumstances where grief is complex and ambiguous.”
