Date: Wednesday, May 26th  from 12-1:30pm

 Zoom login information will be emailed to you once you register.

 Description:

 This seminar will discuss some of the losses experienced over the last year. After a brief discussion of why theories can be useful, we will discuss how newer theories of disenfranchised grief, revision of the assumptive world, and ambiguous grief can help us with our own grief and that of our clients.
