THE SHELF-LIFE OF GRIEF: A Seminar on Death and Dying

Many people, especially teenagers, are unprepared for the death of a loved one. Lacking experience with the emerging levels of grief, it is difficult to make sense of the situation in the midst of crisis or through the mourning process. Topics include the stages of mourning, the psychology of grief, a comprehensive discussion on the ways in which we die, notions regarding the after-life, and helping others grieve. Scott shares his everyday challenge of facing his own mortality and the tangible loss of over 130 friends to AIDS.

Potential Audiences: College students, high school students, grief counselors, church and synagogue youth group members and leaders, clergy, parents.
