Transforming Loss: Finding Potential for Growth is an inspirational program hosted by Baue. The program is about positive change and action by the bereaved in the aftermath of loss. It is appropriate for all professionals working in hospice and palliative care, counselors, clergy, funeral professionals, and any professional whose practice involves the bereaved. Ideal for community education and outreach, this program will touch the heart of anyone who has experienced loss with stories of people who have found meaning and purpose through loss. The program will offer clinicians tools to support and encourage transformative growth in grieving clients and will supply self-help advice for the bereaved.
