SPEAKER/WORKSHOP EVENT: Empathy in Times of Suffering

Friday, February 1, 2019

8:00 am

Lourdes University Franciscan Center

Holland, OH – Good Grief of Northwest Ohio, Inc will host a unique learning opportunity on Friday, February 1, 2019 8:00 am to 10:30 am, at Lourdes University Franciscan Center, featuring Kelsey Crowe, PhD

Dr. Crowe is co-author of There is No Good Card for This:  What to Say and Do When Life is Scary, Awful and Unfair to People you Love (HarperCollins, 2017) Dr. Crowe's message of empathy and compassion will help participants identify and eliminate "roadblocks" to being truly supportive when interacting with others. This workshop will help participants be better listeners and more supportive of others by illustrating empathy starters and quashers, and non-listening styles that keep us from being fully present in a conversation.

Open to all - this topic will be especially beneficial to medical and mental health professionals, educators, and anyone who interacts with children and teens who are grieving.

Seating is limited!

Continuing Education Credits are available for counselors and social workers.

Tickets are $10.00 in advance - $15.00 at the door.  Call Good Grief 419/360-4939, visit our website www.goodgriefnwo.org, or go to http://weblink.donorperfect.com/empathyworkshop to make reservations
