Jane Mowll holds a BSW, and PhD from the University of NSW (UNSW) Australia. Her research interests include qualitative and mixed method research with a particular focus on the grief experience of bereaved individuals and families. This includes experiences of forensic and coronial processes including viewing the body, and viewing crime scene photographs, and other evidentiary material. Her current research includes a longitudinal, narrative, mixed method study focusing on bereavement after palliative death or coronial death. She is a clinical social worker (accredited mental health social worker) with over 18 years practice experience in providing bereavement support, including support to view the body, and counselling to families bereaved by coronial deaths including suicide, accidents, homicide and sudden natural deaths. Her therapy practice and academic interests combine in her current role, convening a Master of Counselling Social work at UNSW. She has published a number of refereed journal articles on the bereavement experience and related issues.
