Interactive Webinar: Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss

Hospice Foundation of America's Annual National Living with Grief Program,
The Community Hospice, and
Macedonia Baptist Church present

Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss
An Interactive Webinar

LIVE on APRIL 10, 2014
2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m

Perhaps the only thing more heartbreaking than seeing an adolescent endure the pain of grief is being unable to help.  A new educational program, intended for clinicians but likely to benefit anyone who works with adolescents, addresses the challenge of how to help adolescents face the loss of friends, siblings, peers, parents and other loved ones.

Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss, the 21st annual program in Hospice Foundation of America's Living with Grief(r) series, will be streamed live via the internet from Howard University in Washington, DC on April 10 from 2-4:30 p.m. ET. This program includes a "live" panel discussion of experts, reacting to and commenting on videos that give the program's curriculum real-world application. Don't miss out on this new and exciting program!

This program focuses exclusively on the issues that adolescents face as they cope with loss. Adolescence, broadly defined, from middle school years to emerging adulthood, is a significant developmental period during which adolescents form identity, independence, and intimacy.  Illness and loss profoundly influences these processes.  Moreover, adolescent encounters with loss are likely to be traumatic-deaths by accident, suicide, and homicide.

This program explores the ways that healthcare workers, hospices, educators, social workers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors, and other professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss.

National Experts:
  • Tashel Bordere, PhD, MS
  • Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, MDiv
  • Pamela Gabbay, MA, FT
  • Stacy F Orloff, EdD, LCSW, ACHP-SW
  • Donna L. Schuurman, EdD, FT
  • Carol Wogrin, PsyD, RN
A panel of local experts will be on site for discussion after the presentation.

Be a part of the conversation! Ask your questions online at any time during the program.

The program is 2.5 hours, with an additional 30-minute local discussion (required for CE credits).

Continuing Education (CE) Credits: 3-hours of continuing education will be available, $15 per person.

Registration is required.  Please call 518-694-4967 or email Dorothy.Britt@sphp.com
