Description: Ambiguous Loss Workshop
Saturday, May 5, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Freewill offering. Co-sponsored by Comfort Keepers.

Pauline Boss reminds us, "With ambiguous loss, there is no closure; the challenge is to learn how to live with the ambiguity." Sometimes ambiguous loss results from a psychological presence but a physical absence, as in adoption or grown children moving away. Sometimes it results from a physical presence but a psychological absence, as in dementia or traumatic brain injury. This workshop will explore how to develop our resiliency in situations of ambiguous loss. Nancy Flaherty, MS, CDP, certified dementia practitioner
