Video: Ambiguous Loss and Approaches for Working with Families of the Missing

Dr. Pauline Boss is a pioneer in the interdisciplinary study of family stress and is widely recognized for her research focused on the theory of ambiguous loss. Her expertise in this theory is widely sought, especially when catastrophe strikes in the world.

This hour-long conversation about ambiguous loss theory occurred between Dr. Boss and Dr. Simon Robins, a humanitarian practitioner and researcher, on April 28, 2014. It was organized and sponsored by the University of Minnesota Department of Family Social Science. The recording is presented by the National Council on Family Relations.
