Hospice Foundation of America’s 2022 Living with Grief® program focuses on the specific issues raised when losses are sudden and traumatic, shattering the bereaved individual’s assumptions that the world is safe, benevolent, or predictable. These deaths can be the result of accidents and disasters; suicides or overdoses; homicide and terrorism; military or service-related deaths; or the unpredictable trajectories of illnesses. In Part One of the program, we explore the factors that complicate grief. In Part Two we use case studies to highlight ways that such losses can be treated. The program concludes with a discussion of vicarious traumatization and strategies for self-care.

There will be local (in person) resource personnel from HopeWest, Rocky Mountain Health Plans, Community Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital at the events.

Continuing Education (CE) and Certificate of attendance will be available from Hospice Foundation of America. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.
