If death doesn’t mean saying goodbye, how are we freed to grieve differently? Conversations will be constructed using innovative ideas that challenge prescriptive notions found in conventional grief psychology. The workshop shall show how to develop relational narratives that live on after a physical death. Attending this workshop will foster a sense or liveliness and provide a new way to think about death and grief, professionally and personally.  This workshop would be good for: counselors, psychologists, nurses, physicians, funeral celebrants, social workers, ministers, students, and those interested in new ideas about death, dying and bereavement.

A personal note from Julia:
We are excited to offer this wonderful training!
The first time I had this training from Lorraine Hedtke (and John Winslade) I was invigorated and inspired in my work with folks dealing with dying, death and loss.  I love her literary approach to working with clients that explicitly rejects the prescriptive “stages” theories.
I’ve taken the training 2 more times and each time found my work improved.
That’s why I wanted to bring her to San Francisco!
