BFO-MR believes educating the community about the grief experience contributes to the healing process and creates opportunities for conversation. Join us to learn about grief and trauma and take away practical information you can use in your own grief journey or career working with bereaved individuals. At this year’s conference, we are excited to welcome: Sarah Schlote, Founder and Director of The Refuge; Carrie Arnold, Assistant Professor, Thanatology, King’s University College; Susan Cadell, Professor School of Social Work, Renison University College, University of Waterloo. The day of learning will wrap up with a panel discussion featuring individuals representing professional support, peer support and lived experience.
