About the presenter
Pat Schwiebert, a registered nurse has been working in the area of bereavement for over 30 years as nurse, educator and counselor. She has co-founded the Compassionate Friends, Brief Encounters, Parents of Murdered Children and Suicide Bereavement Support groups. Her teachers have been ordinary people who were grieving the loss of special people in their lives and who taught her as she walked along side them in their sorrow. Pat has authored 6 books, including When Hello Means Goodbye, a guide for parents whose babies have died, and Tear Soup, a recipe for healing after loss. Her latest book is titled Someone Came Before You.
Pat Schwiebert will share that grief is universal and is also unique to the individual. She will answer the questions: How, then do we know what is best for those in the throes of grief? and Why does the stranger become familiar and family become strangers? It is good to know what grief really feels like so you?ll understand more fully why the bereaved act the way they act, say what they say, and do what they do. From there we can better share others? tear soup and maybe even exchange recipes.
Funeral directors who earned the CFSP (Certified Funeral Service Practitioner) designation this year will be recognized. For more information about the CFSP program, call (866) 431-CFSP.
