Community Hospice & Palliative Care to Host Inspirational Seminar on Grief
World-renowned bereavement expert speaks on disenfranchised grief.

Gainesville, Fla. (April 24, 2019) – On Thursday, April 25  from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., The Charles M. Neviaser Educational Institute of Community Hospice & Palliative Care and 21st Century C.A.R.E. welcome healthcare professionals to attend an inspirational educational seminar with acclaimed grief and loss counselor, Dr. Kenneth J. Doka. 

The title of this inspiring seminar is:  Disenfranchised Grief – When We Don’t Have Validation of Our Loss.  Dr. Doka will inform participants on disenfranchised grief – as well as discuss causes of disenfranchisement and describe five contexts of disenfranchised grief. According to Dr. Doka, “It is not just the grief that is overlooked when someone is experiencing disenfranchised grief, the actual losses are also unacknowledged.”  To understand and assist another person with grief, all of the related losses should be recognized and addressed.” 

Continuing education credit will be available.  1.5 continuing education credits (CEUs) are available through Community Hospice & Palliative Care for nurses, nursing home administrators and nursing assistants (LCSW, LMFT, LMHC).  To receive credit, attendees must provide their license numbers and credentials at sign-in and remain for all sessions. Partial credit will not be available. 

The Senior Recreation Center is located at 5701 NW 34th Blvd, Gainesville, FL 32653.
