Death and grief can be traumatic. It’s painful. But hope, healing and happiness are possible.
David’s personal experience as a child of witnessing a mass shooting while his mother was dying in the ICU helped him begin his journey. Based on decades of working with the dying and grieving, as well as his work with his co-authors Elisabeth Kübler Ross and Louise Hay, this day will transform your work and your life. In this workshop you will learn how to help those that live in a society that often just want people to get over their losses. Strengthen your communication and problem-solving and learn the art of caring for those impacted by grief. Learn new techniques and interventions for helping loved ones navigate this unknown terrain.
- How to work through the what if’s, “If only’s” and regrets
- How to prevent suffering that often complicates the grief
- Techniques to stop from replaying negative images around loss
- Healing from a death by suicide
For: Professionals that work with those in grief and anyone experiencing loss.
