    Is the 16th the second half of what's presented on the 9th? Or are they individual and complete presentations unto themselves?

    • Avatar Linda Woodcook says:

      It looks like they are two separate presentations. The 9th is entitled "Identifying the Grief Journey" and the 16th is "Gender and Cultural Differences". Hopefully this helps.

      The overall topic is grief and loss however different information will be presented each night. The workshops will build on each other. The second night includes a wrap-up and overview of both workshops. Each workshop concludes with a small table discussion which will be facilitated by the same facilitator both nights.
