  • Consolations of Sorrow – Presented by Donna McDonald
    In this presentation, I share not only my experiences of the witnessing power of the written and spoken languages of grief, but also my arts-based responses to my enduring sorrow. In doing so, I put forward the hope that such enduring sorrow can be a consolatory companion of love.
  • Can relationships survive the death of a child? – Presented by Beth O’Brien
    When a child is critically ill and dies, or a sudden death happens, why do relationships alter?  This talk will open the discussion about how the relationships change where some are broken, and others grow stronger.  The relationships between siblings, friends, life partners, ex-life partners, and grandparents will be discussed.  A mention to the often-un-spoken topic of intimacy between parents will also be part of the conversation.
  • Pictures in My Frame – Presented by Trish Carpenter
    This workshop will help you to find ways to assist you when you are on your own and looks at some insights, strategies and reflections that Trish has found to be effective in navigating her grief after losing her seven-year-old son Thomas.
