Grief Programs & Events
Thursday, October 8, 2020
8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
We look forward to having you join us at our annual Grief & Loss Conference. For the first time, and as a result of being abundantly cautious about the spread of Covid-19, we have chosen to offer this conference virtually.
Attendees will be eligible to receive Continuing Education credits.
The conference will be conducted through Microsoft Teams. You will be provided the credentials for accessing the conference approximately one week prior to the event. Your participation throughout the day via questions and comments will make this dynamic event more engaging and helpful for all.
The focus of this year’s conference is based on the latest research, theoretical approaches, and best clinical practices in the field of Thanatology, which is the scientific study of death and the methods associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families.
The course will provide participants with a solid knowledge base in the area of bereavement. It is intended for professionals, volunteers, and support staff who work with the critically ill, the dying, or the bereaved.
We will examine key concepts related to the field of bereavement, and topics will include:
- Current conceptualization of the grief process
- Contexts of grieving
- Challenges in bereavement
- Grief in a global perspective
- $65 individual
- $50 each for three or more from the same organization
- $50 for clergy and educators
- $20 for students with valid ID
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we work, how we live, and especially how we grieve. We can change some things, like how we shop, or how we engage others face-to-face through social distancing. But grief doesn’t change. If you’ve recently lost a loved one, you well know that the grief you’re facing is real, and nothing about COVID-19 is changing that.
