The recent mass shooting in Las Vegas has impacted people throughout the United States. Our world has changed. It changes each time we are assaulted by a violent tragedy that makes the news. Our assumptions about life also have changed, and we must live with the knowledge that the world is not as safe as it once was. Some people experience grief when confronted with the news of such tragedies. This grief may be related to other losses at any time in life.
This presentation will offer an explanation of grief, how it is manifested, what we can do to help ourselves and others who are grieving, and how and why the Las Vegas tragedy and other horrific events impact each of us differently.
