Performance Notes

× Presented by Joshua Black, MA (with special guest Jade Karling Black, MA)

The topic of dreams after loss (grief dreams) has been surprisingly overlooked in academic literature, which has hindered the support for the bereaved of all ages. Many of the bereaved have reported that they keep their dream experiences hidden from others due to the judgements people have pertaining to such dreams. When the bereaved do gain the courage to share them or ask questions on the topic, it is common for those who support them to not know how to respond. What do we make of these dreams and how does it apply to one's grief?

This talk will focus on discussing the top 10 things I have learned from researching dreams of the deceased (human loss and pet loss).

Joshua Black is one of the leading academic researchers in the field of dreams of the deceased. He has focused all of his graduate work on investigating this neglected topic (MA and PhD). He continues to publish scientific research in the field as he finishes his PhD at Brock University (Ontario, Canada). To raise awareness about the topic he started, the Grief Dreams Facebook Group, and the Grief Dreams Podcast. Additionally, he frequently gives presentations and workshops on the topic.

Jade Karling Black is the Grief Dreams Newsletter Editor, guest co-host for the Grief Dreams Podcast, and researcher who assisted on two academic articles on Grief Dreams. Additionally, she is an author and a Certified Life Coach. For more information on her visit
