Silenced Voices

Injury Matters | July 13, 2017

“Despite the introduction of road safety measures and media campaigns, crashes are a leading cause of death in Western Australia. While economic costs of crashes are relatively easy to determine, their psychosocial burden remains appreciably under-studied, as are the social, cultural, historical, temporal, and political contexts within which grief experiences are housed.”

In her thesis, Silenced Voices: Experiences of Grief Following Road Traffic Crashes in Western Australia, Dr Lauren J.Breen PhD, explores the experience of grief resulting from losing a loved one in a crash in Western Australia.
