"Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve."Earl Grollman
The conference will explore the universal human experience of grief and our ability to cope with and assist others. Numerous factors influence how we process loss and how we choose to support ourselves and those struggling in their own grief journey, including culture, circumstances surrounding the loss, coping strategies, and many others. Conference sessions will explore theoretical foundations that inform our interventions, factors that influence, complicate, and contribute to our grief response, and strategies to support ourselves and others during difficult times of loss and grief. We will also examine the impact of the pandemic on our grieving process. Join us for a two-day event exploring this profoundly important and timely topic.
Identify theories that influence our interventions and strategies with ourselves and others.
