Grief School: Muslim Grief + Bereavement

This Grief School event will be a conversation between Muslim professionals who deal with end of life and grief, and a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. What can faith and religion provide during bereavement? What is the importance of rituals? How does culture help or interfere with grief?

We are thrilled that Rizwan Ahmed, Muslim Chaplain at the University of Bristol among many other things, and Dr Sabina Patel, Chief Executive of the Muslim Bereavement Support Service, will be joining this important conversation.

Dr Marta Bolognani will chair this discussion. Marta is an international scholar and research associate at the University of Bristol’s Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship. She’s also teaching at the Clinical Education Development and Research (CEDAR) programme at Exeter University.

Good Grief online events are free to attend. All Grief School events will be available to view from 09:00 on Friday, October 30th until 19:00 on Sunday, November 1st. You’ll receive a reminder email to tune in 24hrs beforehand.
