Bio: Ilsung Nam received his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh, PA. He is interested in research on individuals with complicated grief and bereavement-related depression. His primary focus in this area is on the development, implementation, and evaluation of psychosocial treatment methodologies to improve the care of people with these conditions. He is also interested in the socioeconomic factors, to include assets, that contribute to psychosocial outcomes among people who lose a loved one, and how the elucidation of these factors can serve to aid preventive efforts. Ilsung holds a broad interest in social work education about death and dying issues, as they relate to the provision of care for persons with complicated grief. Further, he has co-authored a number of papers on research related to assets and children's educational outcomes.
