Learn about the basic beliefs, customs, and traditions of other cultures that may be unfamiliar to you. Kathy will share her extensive experience with the human need that crosses all cultures – the need for understanding in the sorrow of death.
When someone in the family has a life-threatening illness, the whole family is impacted by the many changes, the concerns and the unknown. Adults may choose to avoid talking to children about the illness to protect them from pain and distress. However, when children are not informed, they often feel excluded, alone, and isolated. Learn about the importance of talking with young people about the hard stuff.
