Lectures & Conferences
Please join us for a candid, no-holds-barred discussion with Rebecca Soffer, the author of two books, most recently "The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience." She is also cofounder of the modernloss.com community, which since 2013 has become a leader in elevating the conversation around living honestly – and living well – with loss across the long term. Based on her own experience with the sudden deaths of her parents, Rebecca brings a fresh, warm, and even humor-infused perspective to grief and loss in her aim to normalize how we regard this universal experience. She is also full of practical and creative advice, without platitudes or assurances, on navigating through the grief journey and providing meaningful support to those along the way.
The event will be moderated by local grief expert, Ken Barringer, M.A., LMHC, founder of the H.E.A.L.I.N.G. grief support program in Newton, MA.
Rebecca will be available to sign copies of her book following the program. Light refreshments will be provided.
