"Speaking Grief" Panel Discussion with the ICCFA Education Foundation

Speaking Grief

October 7, 2020 2pm EST

Funeral professionals are invited to join us for a panel discussion of “Speaking Grief”, a public media initiative aimed at creating a more grief-aware society. All registrants will receive a link and are asked to watch the movie at your convenience before this discussion.

Speaking Grief explores the transformative experience of losing a family member in a death- and grief-avoidant society. This national public media initiative includes a television documentary, media-rich website, social media campaign, and numerous community engagement events, all aimed at starting a national conversation about grief.

Moving away from the idea that grief is a problem that needs to be “fixed,” Speaking Grief validates the experience of grievers and guides those wishing to support them. There is no “right” way to grieve. By sharing diverse representations of bereavement, Speaking Grief illustrates that grief is a universal, yet individual experience.  Learn more about this initiative by visiting their website https://speakinggrief.org/

Special thanks to the ICCFA for supporting this event.

The National Alliance for Grieving Children is pleased to share our 2019 annual review with you. It is because of you and others who support our mission that our work on behalf of grieving children is accomplished and the goal that no child grieves alone becomes a reality.

The NAGC is a nationwide network comprised of professionals, organizations, institutions and volunteers who promote best practices, educational programming and critical resources to facilitate the mental, emotional and physical health of grieving youth and their families. We are the only national organization dedicated solely to supporting grieving children.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and our members, it is an honor to share an overview of the powerful work of the NAGC.
