TESTIMONIALS

"Some of the polls gave a clearer perspective about the practices of other Bereavement professionals."
- Richard, Hospice of San Joaquin

"It is clear that the speaker is knowledgeable and passionate about profession. Information was helpful and handout is especially useful."
- Sarah, Chesapeake Life Center at Hospice of the Chesapeake

"The polls information about specific counseling modalities suited for grief counseling."
- Lisa, University Hospice

"The review of grief beginning upon admission. We have long shared this practice with risk assessments beginning same. Also, love that there was clarity over Kubler Ross as so many folks still push that as gospel without the background. Grief is not in set stages, so this was excellent to hear. It's always in my speech to new clinical staff who are somehow still getting this old, outdated theory and none of the newer ones that we know are applicable. Thank you."
- Barbara, Arkansas Hospice, Inc.
