Religious coping and meaning-making: A webinar
Religious Coping and Meaning-Making Following Loss of a Loved One
with Laurie Burke, MS, bereavement researcher
December 18, 2013
Noon – 1:30 p.m. CST
Participants in this webinar will explore the relation between the use of a variety of religious coping strategies and activities and the extent to which individuals made meaning of a significant loss. This webinar will provide clinicians with a better understanding of how spiritual assumptions are reinforced, allowing meaning to be more easily created within a strengthened belief framework, and, conversely, how to recognize when an individual’s assumptions have been compromised through a crisis of faith, making meaning-making much more of a struggle.
