Disruptive changes are commonplace and challenging. Resiliency is required, though not always easy to activate. Coping well can be all the more challenging when the changes include loss of dreams for individuals and families and the ambiguity of an on-going pandemic.

In this practical session, participants will be presented with perspectives and tools useful at times like these. Stress overload, daily worries, and grief will be addressed along with honest hope and resiliency practices.

Ted Bowman is a grief and family educator who specializes in change and the resulting loss and grief. He has taught at the Universities of Minnesota and Saint Thomas and led workshops throughout Minnesota and other states. He is also the author of many articles and booklets related to loss of dreams.
