Below are opportunities to participate in research.  TPA is not endorsing these research projects, but has agreed to post information to our website when contacted with a request. 


Dear __________,

            My name is Katarzyna (Kasia) Malecka. In Poland, I am an English professor, but this year, on a Fulbright scholarship, I am conducting research in the Department of Psychology at the University of Memphis, Memphis, TN. I am studying how grief memoirs, my literary specialty, could be used in grief therapy with patients who have suffered loss, as well as a teaching aid in educating future therapists.


As you are a mental health professional, I would like to invite you to participate in my research aimed at examining the familiarity of those in your field with modern grief memoirs.


Grief memoirs are a relatively new genre and have become a popular form of self-therapy and mourning. With the information gathered from this study, I will complete a set of bibliotherapeutic exercises based on published grief memoirs that may benefit clients and therapists.


I would be grateful if you could complete the survey by February ---, 2018.


Also, please feel free to forward the survey link to other colleagues who work with grieving clients and might be interested in this kind of research.


Here is the link to the survey:


Thank you for your consideration. I welcome all feedback and constructive criticism. If you have any questions, you may contact me at:
