      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. My name is Lana Clamens and I am currently a student at Florida International University. My mother died when I was 8 years old. I have read that the relationship between mother and daughter is important for social development, but without a mother how has it affected my relationship with others as of now and in the future I thought. I am doing a field research study on whether the death of a parent or both parents before the age of 17 affects their social engagement as adults. If you want to contribute to my research then please take the survey. The survey is a little long because most of the questions require a short answer. If you have any questions or want to share more with me then contact me at lclam001@fiu.edu https://fiu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ezoiNHhBWSELd4x
  2. Hello, my name is Professor Jill Weinberg, and I am a part of a research team at Tufts University in the Department of Sociology. Our team is conducting research on the experience of terminally ill patients and their family members. We are looking for individuals to take part in an interview with an optional opportunity to write a diary documenting your experiences with a terminal illness. Participation in this research includes an interview which would occur by phone, Skype, or in-person if you are close to the research team. The interview will take 60-75 minutes. Your responses to the questions will be kept confidential. Each interview will be assigned a number code to help ensure that personal identifiers are not revealed during the analysis and write-up of findings. There is a follow-up diary portion to our project where individuals would audio record a weekly diary entry. You can participate in an interview and choose not to participate in the diary-portion of this study, and we would send you an audio recorder which you can keep at the conclusion of the study. The time commitment would be three months. There is no compensation for participating in this study. However, your participation will be a valuable addition to our research and findings could lead to greater public understanding on the experiences of terminal illness. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to jill.weinberg@tufts.edu. Thank you so much!

    Dear members, I am a suicide loss survivor and also a researcher at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.

  6. I'm a graduate student in Medical Anthropology at UCSF/UC Berkeley, and my dissertation research looks at grieving online. The idea emerged out of the experience of losing my own father, who died unexpectedly 2 years ago. My project specifically explores how accessing sites such as online memorials, Facebook profiles, and digital archives might allow people to feel connected to dead loved ones. If you visit a particular website or sites to connect with a loved one who has passed, please consider participating in my research. To learn more about the project and about participating, please contact me at molly.hales@berkeley.edu.
  7. Pet Grief Research

    Have you or someone you know lost a pet due to death or uncertain loss in the last 2-24 months? Researchers at Macquarie University are looking for individuals who are 18 years old or over and have lost their pet in the past 2-24 months. The study is to help researchers develop a greater understanding of how individuals cope with the grief felt following the loss or death of a pet. Pets are such an important part of our lives and so I'm sure many of you will agree this is a crucial area of study The research will involve completing an initial survey, which should take no longer than 40 minutes. After completion a member of the research team will contact you twice at weekly intervals with a second URL to complete the shorter follow up survey, which should last no longer than 15 minutes each time. If you would like to take part in the survey, please follow this link: http://tiny.cc/petgriefsurvey If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the researcher Chloe Green (email: chloe.green@mq.edu.au).
  8. I am doing research that relates to how others feel about there greatest loss.Additionally, I am interested in comparing how others react differently to death. So if anyone could answer these five questions i would really appreciate it. What was your greatest loss so far in your life? What exactly happened? Were there any unusual thoughts or feeling you had as a result from this loss? How were your sleep patterns affected by this loss? What words best describe exactly what you lost from your life?
  9. I am currently collecting data to complete a dissertation study of bereaved parents. The purpose of this study is to expand on existing knowledge and potentially reduce the isolation experienced by the bereaved. Selected participants will include biological and adoptive parents, who have experienced the sudden death of a child, and whose child was between the ages of 2 and 12 at the time of death. The child’s death must have occurred prior to February 20, 2012 and parents must reside in the Continental United States. Each participant, after consenting to engage in this study, will be interviewed via telephone, by the researcher Thomas Fulbrook. For information, please contact Thomas Fulbrook at childlossstudy@gmail.com. I would also add that I have experienced the death of a child and understand the hesitation to participate in research. Please know that you will be treated with the utmost respect and your information will be held in the strictest of confidence. 03/23/2014 Just an update that this is still an active study and there is a small compensation for the participants time. Interviewees may select their choice of a $20.00 Walmart, Target, or Amazon gift card. Tom Fulbrook childlossstudy@gmail.com
  10. Hi, my name is Perri Grabow, and I'm a graduate student at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I'm currently collecting data for my thesis, which focuses on the grief experience and posttraumatic growth. I’m interested in the experiences of individuals who have experienced a significant loss between six months ago and ten years ago. The study takes place entirely online and typically takes about 20 minutes to complete. I believe this research is an important investigation of the grief experiences of individuals. Responses are anonymous; participants are assigned a random combination of letters and numbers that are associated with their responses when the data is stored. Access to the data is only available to the investigator and her advisor. Your assistance would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

  11. Judy Hefren is a doctoral candidate at Florida State University, College of Social Work, whose only son died in 2007 at the age of 17.

Her hope is that this research may in some way help parents make these difficult decisions about belongings following the death of a child. If you are comfortable in doing so, Judy would appreciate it if you would consider completing this survey which may be found at https://fsu.qualtric...a9RgmjSubZrWS9f .
