Grief is a very common emotion that everyone experiences (for example, through death, divorce, moving cities and homes, etc.), yet very few people can recognize or even label it. This is due to the idea that grief is considered a "taboo" topic and should be avoided in conversation. As a result, even fewer people know how to respond to and process grief – both their own and that of others.
As we come out of COVID, keeping conversations about death and grief "taboo" have broader societal implications than we may think. Join us for this webinar to explore what grief is, what can cause it, and how to best respond and process it.
This webinar is hosted by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association in honour of National Grief and Bereavement Day.
Presenter: Maria A. Vassiliou, Founder, Philotimo Life
