Grief in the Workplace: Balancing Multiple Needs for Care & Support by William (Bill) Hoy

Bill HoyThere is an unwritten expectation that anyone who works in end-of-life care should be able to manage grief from multiple losses, including the loss of patients/clients/residents as well as personal loss (such as a loved one).  This program will examine how multiple losses can affect caregivers in the work environment, how to support co-workers as they work through their grief from personal or professional losses, and how to develop skills that will enable caregivers to effectively care for the families they serve while experiencing professional loss.

Join us as William (Bill) Hoy, Clinical Professor of Medical Humanities at Baylor University examines the causes and effects of loss in the workplace and recommends tools to help navigate through multiple losses.  Grief in the Workplace:  Balancing Multiple Needs for Care and Support is an excellent program for anyone who works or volunteers in end-of-life care or aftercare.  Participants will receive 3.0 continuing education contact hours and be able to:

  • Describe the grief process as experienced in workplace loss
  • Explain the causes and effects of loss and multiple losses on healthcare and human service professionals
  • Describe skills needed to successfully respond
  • Create a specific plan to effectively manage the stress of grief

Check-in will be from 8:00 - 8:30 AM.  The conference will begin promptly at 8:30 AM.
The cost for this conference is $15 through advance registration.  The fee on the day of the event will be $25 at the door.
