Sue E. Morris, PsyD, began her career as a clinical psychologist in Sydney, Australia on a community-based adult mental health team. From day one she was interested in the area of grief and loss and was surprised by how little formal education and training she received at University around working with the bereaved.
Dr. Morris has always been interested in being an educator and began to write self-help books in the late 1990s. To date, she has had six books published—four have been co-authored with an Australian colleague and two have been written independently, which are about dealing with grief.
Working at Dana-Farber has allowed her to combine her interests—of writing about grief, working with the bereaved, and educating health professionals about the nature of grief and how to take care of themselves. Her particular areas of interest include program development, bereavement risk screening, self-care for clinicians, and medical education.
