Grief Study

A Canadian researcher at the University of Maryland wants to determine how to best help people who have lost a loved one. She is testing a writing intervention for people who consider themselves to be spiritual or religious. The study is conducted on-line in English only. You may be eligible to participate if you’ve lost a loved one within the last 5 years and are currently feeling distress about it, and religion or spirituality matter to you at least somewhat. You will be asked to complete several questionnaires and be assigned a writing exercise to complete three times for 20 minutes over one week. If you are interested in participating, contact Dr. Michelle Pearce at
