This year’s Grief Awareness Conference is a unique opportunity to connect (virtually) with individuals ready to look closer at the profound connection between personal and cultural grief experience and social justice work. Although hosted online, registration will be limited to enhance participant experience and foster a meaningful learning community.

Professionals, students, and lay people are all very welcome and will benefit from a carefully crafted combination of academic exploration and community conversation intended to improve the work of therapists, researchers, healthcare professionals, social workers, educators, and more.

Expect thought-provoking, nationally-respected keynotes, meaningful connections, and opportunities for inspiration and self-renewal for the work ahead.
