Sep 12, 2012, 09:00 ET from Hospice Foundation of America

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hospice Foundation of America (HFA) will present a live, online webinar focusing on Anticipatory Grief & Anticipatory Mourning: What We Know, How We Can Help on Tuesday, September 18 from noon—1:30 p.m. ET. 

Charles Corr, Ph.D., and Kenneth Doka, Ph.D., MDiv, will discuss the range of reactions and adaptive strategies that patients, families, and healthcare staff employ in the course of an illness.  These reactions are a response not only to the anticipation of death, but also more broadly to all the losses associated within the course of an illness.  During the program, the panelists will describe the phenomena of anticipatory mourning and anticipatory grief.  They will also give case examples and provide interventive strategies to assist caregivers in helping patients, families, and others cope.

Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask the panel questions during the live program. Registration is $85 for an organization or $35 for individuals; a wide range of continuing education credits (CEs) are included.  Registration also includes access to the program online for one year after the original air date.
