My doctoral research has explored adolescent developmental events from a bio-psycho-social perspective and their impact across the lifespan.  I'm fascinated by human behaviour and passionate about ethical research.

The Book

A definitive guide to grief and grieving...This book will help those who are grieving as well as the people who are supporting them understand how to navigate and communicate through grief and how to reach out to others

For all grief workers - practitioners, volunteers, friends and family - Caroline's narrative is a light to guide us through what can be the dark and confusing landscape of grief.

 "Back in 1983, I found myself in an office toilet cubicle miscarrying a 14 week old foetus.  I had no idea I was pregnant..."

"With so much being written about death, dying and bereavement recently, I feel that a post focussing on a more positive narrative might be helpful to counterbalance some of the predictions of negative grief outcomes during this very challenging year."
