Grief Reconciliation International

Grief Reconciliation International logo

The Grief Reconciliation Initiative, York Institute for Health Research, aims to facilitate the transfer of knowledge between academic disciplines and the community on the topic of grief reconciliation.

We have begun a series of global, interdisciplinary, inter-faith projects aimed at exploring and expanding knowledge on the topic of grief reconciliation.

Our goal is to:

  • Educate the public about the need to learn about grief and grief reconciliation
  • Develop partnerships with academics, practitioners, and community stakeholders
  • Create a new field of study that will look at the complex phenomenon of grief reconciliation by showing that it incorporates physical, psychological, spiritual, and social components

Jan Hatanaka, Ph.D., YIHR Research Fellow, leads this initiative.
