Event Description:Although we have little choice about loss and the ensuing grief, we do retain choice on whether we will grow up or down, or grow bitter or better, as a result of our loss. This program explores the most current theoretical perspectives on loss and grief, emphasizing that loss engenders not only grief, but also growth. The presentation addresses the phenomena of post-traumatic growth, noting research on the concept as well as strategies professionals can use in assisting grieving individuals. In addition, individuals struggling with loss will learn self-help strategies as they cope with loss. VON Durham Hospice Service's HFA presentation includes a local panel of experts to help facilitate discussion on this topic. Lunch is included-CE credits available.
