Department: Hospice

Location: Boone County Public Library
Description: St. Elizabeth Hospice and the Boone County Public Library invite you to attend this webinar being offered through the Hospice Foundation of America.

This new program focuses exclusively on the issues that adolescents face as they cope with loss. Adolescence, broadly defined, from middle school years to emerging adulthood, is a significant developmental period during which identity, independence and intimacy are formed. Illness and loss profoundly influence these processes. Moreover, adolescent encounters with loss are likely to be traumatic - deaths by accident, suicide and homicide. This program explores the ways that healthcare workers, hospice clinicians and staff, educators, social workers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors, and other professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss.

This event will offer continuing education credits.
