Murdoch University Professional Development Award Winner 2017

Dr Margaret Sealey, School of Health Professions

Margaret is a lecturer in the Discipline of Counselling, her background was in palliative care and her passion and field of study is grief and bereavement. She will use the funds to attend the 11th International Conference on Grief and Bereavement in Contemporary Society (ICGB) held July 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal. The association’s goals are to promote current best practice on grief, bereavement, trauma, dying and related fields. This conference is held every three years and therefore provides a rare opportunity to meet with clinicians and researchers to advance understanding in this critical area and will provide the opportunity to present Perth as a future conference destination.
