Understanding Grief 2

The EPCALM Adult Leukemia Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. (EPCALM), is a provider of personalized, practical and family-oriented support for patients journeying through leukemia. As such, EPCALM once again is holding its grief conference series entitled UNDERSTANDING GRIEF 2: A Grief Management Conference,  as part of the series of benefit events in May, 2014 dubbed: DGTE Bound The Journey to Wholeness.

Recognizing the grief that patients and their families go through as they live with leukemia, as well as all the tragedies that recently visited the Visayas, EPCALM acknowledges the need to enlarge and deepen both the understanding and management of grief through a comprehensively designed and focused seminar. 

Mel EricksonMain Speaker: Ms. Mel Erickson, BA – Managing Director and Co-Founder of GriefWorks, a U.S. – based bereavement resource for education and support, will be the main curriculum director and speaker.

Boy AbundaInspirational Speaker: Mr. Boy Abunda – award-winning television host, publicist, talent manager and celebrity endorser, will be our guest speaker, to complement Ms. Erickson and other facilitators.

The seminar modules have been specially designed for a wide variety of health care providers, social workers, counselors, church workers, and development workers from government and non-government organizations.

As such, we invite you to join this seminar, which will help you understand the grief process and how to manage and deal with it.
