Grief Is a Journey: Finding Your Path Through Loss

The Hilltop Club and Restaurant, 2030 Wells Road, Orange Park, FL 32073
Oct 19 @ 09:00 AM - 10:30 AM

The Charles M. Neviaser Educational Institute of Community Hospice & Palliative Care and 21st Century C.A.R.E. welcome you to join us for an inspiring educational seminar with world-renowned grief-and-loss expert Kenneth J. Doka, Ph.D., M.Div., professor of gerontology at the Graduate School of The College of New Rochelle (N.Y.) and senior bereavement consultant at Hospice Foundation of America.

Doka will help grievers, and those who support them in their grief, discover a new way to healing by reviewing his groundbreaking new book, “Grief is a Journey.” There is no “one-size-fits-all” way to cope with loss, and new science and studies upend the dominant but incorrect view that grief proceeds by stages. This program will take you through a new, compassionate way to grieve, explaining that grief is not an illness to get over but an individual and ongoing journey unique to each griever.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by the seminar from 9 to 10:30. There is no cost to register. Continuing education credit will be available, and refreshments will be served.

RSVP at DokaInClay.eventbrite.com or call 904.407.6998 by Friday, Oct. 13.

This event is provided as a community service by The Charles M. Neviaser Educational Institute of Community Hospice & Palliative Care and 21st Century C.A.R.E.
