Before and After the Death

Program Details
Living With Grief: Before and After the Death will explore the most current theoretical perspectives on loss and grief as experienced by persons throughout a life-limiting illness and by survivors after the death. A particular focus will be on areas where understandings of grief have been challenged. The program will be useful to a range of professionals who provide bereavement counseling or work with the bereaved. This teleconference is ideal for psychologists, counselors, clergy, social workers, nurses and other health care workers, funeral directors, educators, teachers and school-based personnel. The information will also be helpful to individuals who offer education on loss, grief, dying or death.
