“Let’s Talk About Grief” – Online – Thursday, October 12, 2023 (2 pm – 3:30 pm central time)
Description: This program will provide information about the stages of grief and the different ways people mourn. We will examine grief rituals that people use to process their bereavement.
Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:
∙ Understand the stages of grief as well as the different ways that people, often within the same family, experience grief.
∙ Recognize the importance of healthy ways of grieving.
∙ Identify religious, secular, cultural, pre-death, and post-death grief rituals.
∙ Understand the importance of personal reflection and bereavement aids for the bereaved.
∙ Recognize how death doulas, therapists, and loved ones can support people to process their grief.
The link will be sent before the session begins. This is available for 1.5 CEUs through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois. I’d also welcome caregivers, patients, and curious participants. Please join us! Each session also includes an “Ask a Doula” Q&A at the end where I’ll answer all your questions.
