About The Event
Our spring event features a new resident of Park Place and new neighbor of Carolyn. As you read this, you can guess how quickly Carolyn asked her to join us and share her story.
An excerpt from her book:
Lisa M. Shulman MD is a neurologist specializing in Parkinson disease and other movement disorders.
In Before and After Loss, Dr. Shulman builds on her experience as a neurologist to describe a personal story of loss and her journey to understand the science behind the mind-altering experience of grief. Part memoir, part creative nonfiction, part account of scientific discovery, this moving book combines her perspectives as an expert in brain science and a keen observer of behavior with her experience as a clinician, a caregiver, and a widow. Shedding light on the disconnect between the conventional wisdom about loss and emerging knowledge on the neuroscience of emotional trauma as the cause of brain injury, Dr. Shulman explores not only the experience but also the science and psychology of loss. Drawing on the latest studies about grief and its effects, she explains what scientists know about how the mind, brain, and body respond and heal following traumatic loss. She also traces the interface between the experience of profound loss and the search for emotional restoration.
