Exploring Dissociative Experiences in Grief

26 July 2019

The study will explore dissociative experiences following a bereavement, i.e. feelings of disconnection from the world or yourself. We are interested to know how common these feelings are, and how they relate to early histories and grief experiences.
The study is recruiting people who are over the age of 18 and have experienced a significant bereavement. If you choose to take part, you will be asked to fill in a series of questionnaires via an online survey.


  • Over 18 years old
  • Fluent in English language
