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.
