Reflections of Grief

Facilitated by: Kim Anderson, MSW, LCSW, ATR-BC, REAT
St. Louis, MO

Loss and bereavement are natural aspects of life and absolute experiences of death. Professionals are accustomed to helping clients work through these issues but are not always able to find solace in their own experiences of death and dying. This experiential workshop is designed to provide a safe space for practitioners to process the experiences surrounding client or patient death and the profound, unspoken void created.

To register online, go to:

June 11 (7 to 9:30 pm) and June 12-17, 2017
