Ten things to Never Say or Do for Parents who Lost a Child

Wednesday, October 31

2:00pm-3:30pm

Childhood illness or death makes us feel uncomfortable. This immersive workshop shares simple strategies so you can experience a paradigm shift of agency + empathy to become a healing presence.

Childhood illness or death is taboo. We don’t want to think about it and we don’t know how to comfort people. The list of well-intentioned hurtful comments is extensive but there are some easy solutions that allow you to be part of the healing. Join Lisa Buksbaum, who's led workshops for Fortune 500 companies, Bereavement Centers, Community Groups, and Hospitals around the world. She is CEO & Founder, Soaringwords, a not-for-profit that has helped 500,000+ ill children and families take active roles in self-healing. She launched Soaringwords shortly after three experiences with death + illness happened in her family in ten months.
