The ABoVE airborne campaigns can p...


The Reflection Room: Moving from Death-Denying to Death-Discussing, Part 2
Principal Investigator: Holyoke, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Human beings are storytellers. Understanding complex challenges through narrative builds empathy. Stories also trigger the imagination for future possibility. The research team think that providing places for storytelling and places for reading the stories of others might trigger more thinking and discussing dying and death. In this research, the team will build on a study of, Reflection Rooms,...
