Jill Johnson-Young: Your Grief, Your Way, Your Rules!

Coming in February 2022!

Jill Johnson-Young, LCSW is a grief expert, therapist, author- and a double widow who married the funeral director/embalmer/DMORT member who cared for her first two spouses. She lives in the world of grieving clients and communities she touches around the world, and in the world of those in funeral service. She loves conversation more than speaking at her audience- that’s no fun for anyone. Instead, she will be speaking with you about what compassion fatigue does, and how we can move through it, take better care of ourselves and each other, and find your way back to the profession you love.
We look forward to having Jill join us in February, 2022, for two virtual programs!

What’s Your Grief: Supporting Shattered Worlds

Coming in May 2022!

Litsa and Eleanor developed a website about grief.  As mental health professionals who have experienced significant loss themselves, they know individual grief is unique and that there is no “right” way to cope.  Their goal is to create a community that provides hope, support, and education to anyone wishing to understand the complicated experience after loss.
