Lessons in Loss and Living Workshop - May 11th-16th

Usually when we think about loss or grief, we think about the loss of a precious loved one. However, there are many kinds of losses in this life including:

  • Coping with chronic illness or ongoing health challenges
  • Transitioning to a new phase of life due to divorce, empty nest, retirement, unemployment, and even simply adjusting to growing older.
  • Relocation and moving away from friends, loved ones
  • Becoming a caregiver to a previously healthy partner
Join Dr. Michele Reiss for an inspiring series of workshops that allow us to recognize and cope with any losses in our lives while continuing to grow, to take care of ourselves and ultimately live well.

The workshop’s price includes all five small-group sessions with Dr. Reiss as well as a signed copy of her book, Lessons In Loss and Living, and a personal journal for your own reflections. Total participants limited to 16. Workshop fees are in addition to the weekly LIVE and LOSE Well programs.  Click here to learn more.

Michele Reiss, PHD, RN, CS is a world-renowned expert on the psychological effects of grief. She was publicly recognized as the psychotherapist working with Dr. Randy Pausch, a CMU professor diagnosed with pancreatic cancer who received much media attention due to the enthusiastic optimism he demonstrated in the face of a terminal illness. Dr. Pausch's lecture and television appearances have hopefully served to inspire others to live fully and well in spite of significant adversity. Dr. Reiss has written a book, entitled Lessons in Loss and Living, based on her years of work with those facing serious illness or acute grief. She has presented nationally and locally on such topics as Grief and Bereavement, The Physician's Role in Terminal Care and The Psychological Aspects of Cancer Survival.
