technologies have profoundly influenced social practices and views about
death, dying and bereavement. Transcending the limits of space and
time, the internet provides us with instant access and often-immediate
feedback. This workshop will provide information on the emerging field
of 'thanatechnology' and how technology can be enlisted to provide and
enhance bereavement support. How can we use technology as a means of
providing bereavement support? How does technology provide opportunities
to deal with death, dying and bereavement? How can we best deliver
bereavement support? What roles do blogs, social media, smartphones and
web conferencing platforms play in providing effective bereavement
counselling and support? This workshop will also examine the evidence on
the effectiveness of telehealth programs and the delivery of
bereavement services remotely.
Professionals working with
those experiencing grief and bereavement, such as counsellors,
therapists, psychologists, social workers and other allied health
professionals. This will be of particular interest to practitioners with
an interest in providing web based bereavement support.
