Join us for the Follow-up event: Winter Workshop for Perinatal Loss and Grief

December 07 2021, University of Zurich



Are you a PhD student or early career scholar? Are you interested in studies in the field of motherhood and grief or did you participate the Winter workshop on perinatal loss and grief? Then join us for the "Follow-up event: Winter workshop for perinatal loss and grief" in Zurich.

Perinatal loss and grief
Perinatal loss (e.g. miscarriage, stillbirth) is a profound experience for parents which engenders a unique kind of mourning. Also known as disenfranchised grief, parents who have lost a baby in this way often do not experience the same kind of support as other types of loss, e.g. the loss of a spouse or child.


About the follow-up event:
The Division of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy and the Division of Psychopathology and Clinical Intervention, UZH, will host a follow-up networking event  on perinatal loss and grief, December 7th at the University of Zurich, Main Campus.


Aim of the follow-up event:
In this live networking morning, we will continue building up knowledge on the field of perinatal losses and grief, but will have a greater focus on knowledge sharing and networking among participants. Participants will have the opportunity to actively exchange ideas troughout the different activities proposed. As before, this follow-up event will be held in English.


The follow-up event is open to junior researchers (Post Doc, PhD, and MSc students) from related study areas. There is no registration fee, attendance is free (with registration). Funding by the UZH Graduate Campus via a GRC Grant is gratefully acknowledged.
