The Role of Our Autobiogrophy in Coping with Loss and Grief



Workshop Description

We each go through a grieving process for any loss based on our experiences in life so that the process is unique for us as individuals. Influences on our grieving include the nature of the loss, our family history around dealing with loss, religious upbringing and influences, cultural influences, and societal norms. People often bring their grief to the workplace or into other relationships in ways that can be harmful if we do not do the work to understand and take responsibility for our grief process. Participants will leave the presentation with tips on effectively understanding where they are in their own grieving process, what their autobiography is about loss and grief, and how to take responsibility for their grieving process to avoid negatively impacting all areas of their lives.
