Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss
Part of the Hospice Foundation of America's 21 Annual Living with Grief Program

Thursday, October 23 from 9:00 a.m. to noon followed by afternoon workshop

This program focuses exclusively on the issues that adolescents face as they cope with loss.  Adolescent encounters with loss are likely to be traumatic - deaths by accident, suicide and homicide.  This program explores the ways that healthcare workers, hospice clinicians and staff, educators, social workers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors, and other professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss.

The webinar and workshop are offered without charge.  Parking is in the Trillium Health Partners pay lot located behind the hospice building.

Please call 416-626-0116 to register.
