EAU CLAIRE — A teleconference to be offered at several Chippewa Valley locations April 14 will explore the ways grief influences people in various settings.
The seminar, titled "Living With Grief: At Work, At School, At Worship," will offer humane and practical suggestions for coping with grief in your workplace, school or place of worship. Participants will learn techniques to assist those who are grieving or struggling with illness and loss.
The seminar, to run from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at UW-Extension offices in Chippewa, Dunn and Eau Claire counties, is part of the Hospice Foundation of America's sixth annual bereavement teleconference moderated by ABC news correspondent Cokie Roberts. Joining Roberts will be a panel of experts who will discuss grief-related issues.
Participants will receive .3 CEU's for three hours of instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Human Sciences and Services Outreach in cooperation with UW-Extension. Three contact hours of CEU credits also will be available from the Hospice Foundation of America for nurses, counselors, funeral directors, clergy, social workers, psychologists, physicians and nursing home administrators for an additional $20.
This seminar is recommended for nurses, counselors, funeral directors, clergy, human relations personnel, social workers, psychologists, physicians and nursing home administrators, volunteers and individuals who are suffering from loss or grief or supporting those who suffer.
The seminar cost is $10. For more information or for registration materials, contact the Human Sciences and Services Outreach office at (715) 836-3990 or email stokesrk@uwec.edu.
