Making Memories through Ceremony: Integrating Grief through Funerals and Memorial Services
With William Hoy, DMin, FT
Recorded August 2018
In our presenter’s experience, commemorative events like funerals, memorial services, and celebrations of life serve to “jump start” the grief process for mourning families and communities. In both his clinical practice and his academic research, he has found great benefit to utilizing what he has come to call the five “anchors” of funeral ceremonies that unite humans across millennia and cross-culturally. In this webinar, Dr. Bill Hoy will demonstrate how memorial events draw people together in the midst of profound sorrow to help them begin the process of integrating the loss into the rest of their lives.
