Topic: Grief & Loss with Lisa Robinson from Andrea Warnick Consulting
This month, we are focusing on how to support our youth and adult loved ones who live with disability, as they move through their own grief process.
For too many years, people with intellectual disabilities were excluded from grieving rituals and family loss conversations. As we begin to support our loved ones who have experienced loss in new and inclusive ways, we see that not only can they cope better with their grief, but their unique perspective can be helpful in supporting others who are grieving as well.
This event will be on Zoom. Please RSVP to Mary at [email protected] if you would like to join us.
