Notes for Faculty and Staff

Grief, Dying and Death Workshop

This workshop is meant to be a thoughtful and compassionate seminar that helps people talk and deal with a topic that's not often discussed. For many of us, this can be a very confusing time in our lives when we lose someone close to us and we don't have a lot of experience with it. This is a session where people can share, explore and educate themselves on ways of coping with their grief.
