Lifestories Archive

Grief in a Family Context, HPER F460/F560

Lifestories that depict loss and grief in families will be used in this class. In some instances, we will use these to initiate discussion on the class conference site. In other cases, we will analyze a lifestory as a means of better understanding one or more of the course topics. Some of these lifeststories are accounts of actual losses. Others have been developed from the instructor's research, with aspects of a number of different reports incorporated into a single story.

Lifestories will be archived at this site and others will be added throughout the semester. You're invited to write a lifestory for inclusion in the lifestory archive. If you are interested in doing so, please contact the instructor at
