Event: Finding Meaning and Purpose After Loss
Speaker: Susan Casey, MSW, MFA
Presentation: Please join Susan Casey, therapist, grief and loss coach, bereavement group facilitator, podcaster, and author of Rock On: Mining for Joy in the Deep River of Sibling Grief for a discussion on grief, loss, and healing.
In this 90-minute presentation and interactive discussion with audience members, Susan will share her personal story of loss, followed by a talk that will cover grieving vs. mourning, types of grief people experience, strategies for coping with grief, and post-traumatic growth and healing.
Through Susan’s personal experience of losing her younger brother in 2014 and through her professional work throughout the past 3 decades, Susan has learned that grief can be a gateway to experience and embrace our inner light in more a profound and life-changing way when we surrender rather than resist the profound losses in our lives.
Please come prepared to engage in an informative, hopeful, and interactive discussion about an often taboo topic where we often flash a smile to the outside world, pretending that all is well, while we grieve behind closed doors where we often feel isolated, alone, and in despair.
