This Thing Called Grief - with a special emphasis on Culture and Customs

On April 12, 2013 join us 
at the Drumheller Health Centre, 
351-9th Street NW, Drumheller...
to learn more about supporting people in your community who have lost a loved one, join Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association for a full day of training at our Grief and Bereavement Workshop.

Grief is a universal reaction to death, yet each person's grief is unique.  Our individual attitudes and circumstances, including our religious and cultural beliefs will affect our response.  With this in mind, the workshop will be divided into two half-day seminars which will teach supportive skills as well as cultural differences.  You'll leave with new skills, insights and cultural sensitivities.

Workshop 9:00 - 4:00pm.
Registration and Coffee at 8:30am.

Hosted by the Drumheller Community Cancer Centre,
