Charles Evans Lecture on the Art & Science of Caregiving


Here But Not Here –
Learning to Live with Ambiguous Loss

Join Jed A. Levine, CaringKind’s Executive VP and Director of Programs and Services, as he moderates a candid discussion with Dr. Pauline Boss, widely recognized for her groundbreaking research on the theory of ambiguous loss, and author of Ambiguous Loss: Learning to Live with Unresolved Grief, and family caregiver Karin Marder. Dr. Boss’s research and practice have revealed that those who suffer ambiguous loss, losses without finality or resolution, bear a particular and challenging burden. This year’s lecture will focus on the loss, trauma, and resilience people experience when coping with “ambiguous loss” after an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis.
