Query: Hi everyone! I have a piece coming up on PTSD and its relationship to grief. I’m looking for quotes on:

  1. Can grief turn into PTSD?
  2. What is traumatic bereavement?
  3. What is the difference between grief-related PTSD and complicated grief?
  4. What are some signs that grief may be transitioning to PTSD?

As always, I need a link to your professional bio page on a private practice site, commercial employer, or academia. I can’t use bios from general internet directories or competitor content sites. The website you submit must at least have your name and credentials on it, preferably with an extended bio. I do prioritize submissions with the answers already provided in the reply, and I usually use 2-3 experts in each article. If you’d like to learn more about me and what I write, you can visit my author pages:


Requirements: Mental health professionals please. Thank you!

Summary: Licensed therapists or psychologists – Empaths

Query: Looking to quote two licensed therapists or psychologists about empaths. In your own words, please answer the following questions in full sentences never published by you before.

  1. What does it mean to be an empath? I know it’s one of the more buzzy terms going around online for some time now, but please explain what it generally means when someone refers to themselves or others as an empath.
  2. Please comment on any scientific validity (or lack of) about empaths. I’m looking to get a sense from experts whether empaths are “real” or whether it’s a buzzword/blanket term used to describe a specific personality type (i.e., a highly sensitive person) or other phenomena.
  3. How does being an empath differ from being a sensitive person, someone highly intuitive, etc., if at all?
  4. What are some common signs someone may be an empath? (Feel free to also point to any science-backed research here if applicable.)
  5. If someone feels they are an empath, what are some pros and cons they may experience?
  6. What is a “dark empath”?
