Reimagine End of Life is a week exploring big questions about life and death.
New York October 27 – November 03, 2018

before / end / after (Day 2)

Sunday, October 28

10:00am-5:00pm

Day 2 of “before / end / after” (a two-day event) is designed to help anyone and everyone conceptualize ways they can help a grieving friend or family member. And more importantly, it is an opportunity to take action on those ideas. Attendees will start the day listening to a panel of experts and end it putting that advice to work.

How do we support a loved on through grief?

When we support grieving people, it’s impossible to get everything right. We say the wrong things, do the wrong things, and even avoid doing anything altogether. And that’s understandable, because many of us don’t get experience learning from intense grief until we’re thrown into it ourselves.

But we believe that if we’re proactive in learning about ways we can support others through their grief, we can better take care of those around us—friends, family, and coworkers, alike.

Day 2 of before / end / after is titled "Good Grief" and is designed to help you conceptualize ways to help a grieving friend or family member. And more importantly, Good Grief is an opportunity to take action on those ideas.

You will:
- hear from experts in the death and grief spaces (panel)
- explore the ways grief affects us, the roadblocks that many of us hit when trying to support, and ways we can help that we might never have thought of (workshops)
- take away tangible materials to help you in your grief support moving forward (print takeaway)

By the end, you should not only become more comfortable with any hesitation you might have felt before the workshop (now understanding the complexities of grief), but you'll also learn about their own incredible capacity to support and love through a variety of outlets and actions.

Good Grief is for anyone interested in lending a hand to a friend in need, in turn making the effort to make the world post-loss less isolating for those living in it.
