“This Sure Ain’t Your Granddaddy’s Grief!” – We like to believe that in the “good ole days” people knew how to get grief done. Contemporary Americans are trying to grieve in a culture that expects “fast-track” grieving. No time for thorough grief. Individuals must navigate not only a loved one’s death(s) but grieve for fractured assumptions about how the world “works.” The environments in which grief unfolds is equally challenged by secondary losses, a pandemic of trauma, and residue from an epidemic.

Guest Speaker: Harold Ivan Smith, DMIN, FT

Check-in will be from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. prior to the event at Brookwood Church.
