Good Grief: Understanding Grief and Resources for Coping Effectively

The experience of grief is a natural part of life, and many have experienced this watershed moment more than once. Few individuals are equipped to navigate the process of grief with ease; many struggle against the waves of emotions that accompany each new stage. Grief is a complex emotion that can affect us physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. In this informative presentation Rev. Jeana Fortenberry, Chaplain; and/or John Butler, BA, MS, of Family Private Care will discuss all the different aspects of grief including the different types/causes of grief, and the different manifestations of grief. In addition, attendees will explore the cultural/spiritual impacts on grief and the importance of childhood grief. Lastly, effective coping techniques will be discussed and practiced. By the end of this presentation, attendees will walk away with an increased knowledge of grief and its affects, in addition to a set of effective techniques and skills which can be used to help their patients and clients cope with grief.

Humor Part 2: Maybe Laughter is the Best Medicine After All!

What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul (Yiddish proverb)… as we discovered through our “Humor Part 1” presentation -this might be a truer statement than we would think. Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle or sneeze. Laughter triggers healthy physical changes in our body. Best of all, laughter is fun, free and easy to use!! In this follow-up presentation, John Butler, BA, MS –with over 6 years of experience in dealing with geriatric clients and families -will explore different ways that humor is used in the healthcare isna –both with patients and also with healthcare team members. We will start out by taking a brief self-assessment on humor and follow this with some exploration of humor in the medical setting (research on using humor to moderate a patient’s response to pain, humor in communication and even an overview of Gallows humor). As a refresher, we will also review times when using humor might not be appropriate. The attendee will leave this CEU presentation with a broader knowledge of the use of humor in healthcare and communication.
