CNR to host a discussion how to examine and confront different types of grief in society.
NEW ROCHELLE-The College of New Rochelle (CNR) will host the Hospice Foundation of America’s annual Living With Grief®Teleconference.
Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, MDiv, Professor of Gerontology, CNR Graduate School, will join other noted panelists to discuss the topic, “When Grief is Complicated.” This year’s program examines the nature of complicated grief, which is a significant deviation from the typical grieving process, and how it can result in additional complications and dangers. Research shows that between 10 and 20 percent of those grieving experience more disabling reactions, including complicated grief triggered by the loss, PTSD, major depressive disorder, separation anxiety disorder, adjustment disorder, or substance abuse.
The panel will be moderated by Frank Sesno, Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University and former CNN anchor. The program is cosponsored by Riverside Memorial Chapel, Bennett Funeral Home, and Whalen and Ball Funeral Home.
Each year this award-winning program is produced by Hospice Foundation of America, a not-for-profit organization, which acts as an advocate for the hospice concept of care through ongoing programs of professional education, public information, and research on issues relating to illness, loss, grief, and bereavement.
