Presented by: Bonnie Tompkins, Pam Blackwood
Death, dying, loss, and bereavement are often taboo topics. Discussing them in schools and workplaces can thus present very hard nuts to crack.
In this presentation, participants will learn about successful initiatives to engage schools, workplaces, and faith communities in discussions about the sensitive topics of death, dying, loss, and bereavement. The presentation will highlight why the initiatives were created, the pros and cons of the strategies adopted, and final outcomes. Participants will be able to use the experiences from these compassionate community projects to help build their own initiatives within their community.
