Chaplaincy Hospice Care presents Annual Living with Grief Program

Presented by Chaplaincy Hospice Care

Join us on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at our Spaulding Facility (1480 Fowler St., Richland, WA 99352) as we present Hospice Foundation of America’s annual Living with Grief program. This year’s theme is “When Grief is Complicated” and it addresses the fact that while most individuals can cope with loss and subsequent grief in ways defined by their culture as appropriate, research shows that  between 10 and 20 percent of individuals who experience loss experience more disabling reactions, including Complicated Grief or other conditions triggered by the loss, such as PTSD, Major Depressive Disorder, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Adjustment Disorder or substance abuse. Complicated Grief reactions may also be a factor in physical illness. The program looks at how to identify disabling grief reactions and when referrals to specially trained clinicians or professionals may be indicated and necessary.

There is no cost to attend this program, unless you are purchasing CE credits. Registration begins at 10:00 am, the program runs from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm with a thirty-minute panel discussion following. Lunch will be served and is sponsored by Nuclear Care Partners.
