New Zealand
Liese Groot-Alberts was born in Fryslân, part of the Netherlands, is living in New Zealand and works internationally as a public and keynote speaker, palliative care educator, presenter of loss, grief and bereavement trainings and clinical supervisor for Healthcare Professionals.
 In 1972 her eldest daughter, aged nearly 3, died suddenly 2 days after the birth of her son. 

Hope and despair, joy and sorrow! 

Out of this life changing experience came her passion for working with healthcare professionals and volunteers.

Over a period of many years she worked with and for Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross as a workshop leader and staff member presenting workshops in New Zealand, Australia, USA and Europe. 

After Dr. Ross’ retirement she has continued to develop her own workshops and has specialised in conducting trainings in trauma, loss, grief and bereavement, Palliative Care, as well as Self-care for the Carer, resilience, spirituality, and working with difference, finding strength and hope in connectedness. She has conducted lectures and workshops in the USA, Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa, The Pacific and New Zealand.
