Grief is a natural response to loss. How is grief of the professional different? Does it affect our work? Does it affect the professional personally? What do you do with the feelings and effects it produces? This workshop is aimed at addressing the grief of the professional and techniques for coping. If you work in a field that results in multiple client losses due to death this can be an invaluable opportunity to learn and grow personally and professionally.
