Living with Grief Panel
April 27, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Hospice Foundation of America’s 2017 Living With Grief® program, When Grief is Complicated, will be moderated by Frank Sesno, Director, School of Media and Public Affairs, The George Washington University. The program will feature a panel of experts who will address how to identify disabling grief reactions and when referrals to specially trained clinicians or professionals may be indicated and necessary. While most individuals who experience loss face grief, most grievers can cope with current and subsequent grief in ways defined by their culture as appropriate and can fulfill, after brief and intermittent impairment, their social and workplace roles. However, research shows that between 10-20 percent of individuals who experience loss experience more disabling reactions, including complicated grief or other conditions triggered by the loss, such as PTSD, major depressive disorder, separation anxiety disorder, adjustment disorder, or substance abuse. Complicated grief reactions may also be a factor in physical illness.
The Hospice Foundation of America will be providing (2.5) contact hours of CEs for nurses, social workers, counselors, funeral directors, clergy, psychologists, physicians, case managers, nursing home administrators, and others. Please verify your professional/state board’s approval.
Participants must sign in upon arrival at the program; attend the entire program (including local discussion); complete an online CE evaluation form and exam
after the program; pay an online processing fee of $18 per certificate from April 27 to May 11, 2017, per participant and a $10 charge for each additional certificate.
