1/30 Grief and Music

The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California will co-sponsor a free webinar titled The Transforming Power of Music, with Olivia Newton-John and Friends on January 30, 2017.  Loss and grief occur for many reasons — whether it’s caring for a seriously ill patient, or losing a loved one, a relationship, one’s health, a pet, or a job.  It’s important to remember that each person’s grief is as individual as his or her DNA – and there truly is no timeline for healing from loss.  With the fast-paced society we live in, we are often forced to “get over things.”  However, grief has its own clock.  For details and registration see https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5001456673658620163 .
