Dr Susan Delaney, IHF Bereavement Services Manager announced as TEDxUCD 2016 Speaker

University College Dublin (UCD) has announced the 10 speakers who will take part in the university’s fourth annual TEDxUCD event.

Among this year’s TEDxUCD speakers is Dr Susan Delaney, a clinical psychologist and Bereavement Services Manager here at the Irish Hospice Foundation, which has a long standing relationship with UCD’s School of Psychology. Susan’s TEDxUCD 2016 talk is entitled ‘Grief, it’s complicated…..10% of the time.’

Dr Susan Delaney said, “Is all grief normal? Or is all grief complicated in its own way? We tend to hold strong opinions about grief, but often these beliefs are at odds with the research. In my forthcoming TEDxUCD talk, I will examine some myths around grief and present the case for why grief should sometimes be diagnosed as a psychological disorder.
