ISPP Alum Dr. Jeanne Kestel, Psy.D., and Dr. Christopher Rector, Ph.D. were co-authors with a group of other researchers on a quantitative study identifying validity evidence for a measure of preparatory grief in advanced cancer patients. The study was just published in the January 2017 issue of the Journal of Palliative Medicine. This study built on Dr. Kestel’s original Clinical Research Project (CRP) work.
