Her research and practice focus on all aspects of traumatic grief, primarily the deaths of babies and children, and homicide and suicide. With nearly 70 published papers in top tier journals like The Lancet and BMJ, Dr. Cacciatore’s work has been widely read, and she is known for her humanistic approach to traumatic grief. Her best selling book, Bearing the Unbearable: Love, loss, and the heartbreaking path of grief, won the 2017 Indies Book of the Year Award.  In 1996, she founded the MISS Foundation, an international NGO helping families facing the death of a child.
