Illuminating Grief and Loss: A Workshop for Grieving Families

Facilitator: Shaina Fawn, LCSW

In our time together we will explore societal and personal attitudes towards death, dying, grief and loss as a means of uncovering participant self-awareness and insight. We will learn about the research that has been done about grief and the various types of grief that exist in order to better understand our own grief process. In doing this exploration, we will provide families with tools they can continue to use in their own families to have difficult, but crucial conversations around this important, and often taboo topic.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To increase self-awareness of personal attitudes toward death, dying, grief and loss
  2. To learn more about grief theory and the various types of grief
  3. To gain better insight into participants own personal grief process
  4. To be better equipped to have difficult conversations around death, dying, grief, and loss in family situations
