6th Annual Professional Conference on Grief & Loss

Friday, Sept. 29, 2017 9:00 a.m – 4:30 p.m.
Mary E. Rittling Conference Center at
Davidson County Community College
297 DCCC Road, Thomasville, NC 27360
Robert A. Neimeyer, Ph.D., Professor in the Department of Psychology, University of Memphis will lead this year’s conference. Death may end a life, but not necessarily a relationship. Drawing on attachment-informed and two-track models of bereavement, the material will focus on considering grieving as a process of reconstructing rather than relinquishing bonds with those who have died, and the circumstances that can interfere with this natural processParticipants will leave with several tools for assessing “pro-symptom positions” that complicate grieving, helping clients appreciate the role of the loved one in their construction of their own identities, and re-accessing and revising frozen dialogues with the deceased that hamper post-loss adaptation.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a specialized type of health care that is delivered by our own physicians, nurses, Hospice aides and social workers. Many patients and families also choose to include additional team members such as a spiritual counselor, grief counselor, and a volunteer.
