Grief Support Network Conference

For example, a person who experiences complicated grief, which is a type of grief that makes us feel stuck, will be unable to get past the feeling and move forward.

Grief is insidious, and it permeates all aspects of a person's life.

In this conference, you will learn how to identify and manage several issues relating to grief and loss. This conference will also help individuals and families understand the complex emotions of loss and the impact of grief. You would also be given some of the tools needed to help you begin the process of moving from grief towards healing

Conference Objectives

This conference was specially designed to help participants:

❗Gain a deeper understanding of grief as a complicated mix of emotions we feel in response to a loss of any kind.

❗Become more comfortable speaking about and competent at identifying grief

❗Learn what factors complicate a person’s natural grieving process and how to assess a griever's behaviour to determine whether they are stuck

❗Create more awareness about grief support groups

❗Become knowledgeable about Interventions that are readily available.

So, If you would like to gain a deeper understanding of grief (particularly prolonged and complicated grief), find out how to support yourself, others and the community (by acquiring the right tools), understand the power of speaking up and getting support, and learn healing milestones that can encourage adaptation to losing, then this conference is for you.

Grief Support Network Conference 2022

Theme - Finding Healing When Grief Gets Complicated or Prolonged

Date: August 27th, 2022 | Time:  10am (WAT / +1 GMT) | Venue: Ground Floor of the LCCI Conference & Exhibition Center, 10 Dr Nurudeen Olowopopo Way, Drive 101233 Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos

We all experience loss in our lives.

It is an inevitable part of being human. Some losses we grieve over, manage, and are able to move past; other losses put our life on hold, leaving us feeling stuck in the pain and grief.

While grieving is a normal response to death and loss, for some people, the grieving experience is more severe and debilitating.

In this conference, we will explain how and why grief can become complicated. We will discuss how to identify when a griever is stuck and how you can help guide them to a healthy grieving path - through education, coping skills acquisition, spirituality, and therapeutic processing.

We will also be showing you how powerful and profitable it can be when one is able to make meaning out of his or her most painful losses, by sharing with you the experiences of people who have been through the journey.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of grief and what can lead to complicated grief

Participants will be exposed to grieving tools for intervention

Participants will gain a better understanding of the importance of support groups

Participants will learn healing milestones that can encourage adaptation to loss

In summary, Grief Support Network Conference 2022 is about the following:

✔️ Grief literacy and advocacy

✔️ Grief awareness and education

✔️ Grief and bereavement support

✔️ Common reactions to prolonged grief

At the event, I am also going to be launching my first book titled:

When It Hurts: Understanding Grief and Practical Steps for Moving Forward with Life after a Loss

I am also inviting you to join us for the book launching aspect of the conference.
 
The event will be held on the Ground Floor of the LCCI Conference & Exhibition Center, 10 Dr Nurudeen Olowopopo Way, Drive 101233 Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos on Saturday 27th August 2022.

The conference starts at 10 am, and the book launch is scheduled to start immediately after the conference.

Grief Walk: Experiencing God After the Loss of a Loved One (God and Grief Series)

Paperback – June 24, 2020 by Gary Roe  (Author)

A loved one dies. Your world is upended. The emotional pain can be intense.

Your heart begins asking questions. “Am I going crazy? Am I going to make it? Where is God in all this?”

Many of the people around you don’t know what to say or do. They utter cliches and platitudes.

“It’s okay. You’re strong. You’ll get through this.”

You need something more than this – far more. You need to know that it’s okay to hurt, to be sad, and to grieve. You need to know that you’re not crazy and that your grief is “normal.” You need to know that you’re not alone in this. You need to know that you will get through this, even though you will not be the same person you were before.

Widow’s Might: Embracing Life after the Loss of Your Spouse – An Encouraging Book for Widows Dealing with Grief and Loss

 Paperback – August 1, 2016 by Kim Knight (Author)

What happens when your husband dies unexpectedly in the prime of your life and marriage?

In Widow’s Might, Kim Knight shares her experience when her husband suddenly and unexpectedly died at fifty-six years old. In one day, Kim went from planning her future with her best friend to planning a funeral, searching for passwords to online accounts, trying to return to normal when things were no longer normal, and finding God in the middle of trauma and grief.

Learning to embrace a life different from the one you imagined isn’t something you’re going to master by the end of year one, when your family and friends think you should, or when you hope you might. You can deeply embrace and honor your marriage to your late spouse and still find contentment, happiness, and maybe even love in the days ahead.

Grief Observed Readers' Edition

A Paperback – January 1, 2015 by C.S. Lewis  (Author)

In April 1956, C.S. Lewis, a confirmed bachelor, married Joy Davidman, an American poet with two small children. After four brief, intensely happy years, Davidman died of cancer and Lewis found himself alone again, and inconsolable. To defend himself against the loss of belief in God, Lewis wrote this journal, an eloquent statement of rediscovered faith. In it he freely confesses his doubts, his rage, and his awareness of human frailty. In it he finds again the way back to life. Now a modern classic, A Grief Observed has offered solace and insight to countless readers worldwide.

This expanded edition will include the original text of A Grief Observed as well as new and specially commissioned responses to the book and its themes from respected contemporary writers and thinkers.
