Good Mourning: Dealing with Loss in Cross-Cultural Service
by Connie Befus, Ph.D.
This webinar workshop explores why people from Western cultures often don’t understand loss or the need to grieve appropriately, and why there is even greater need for those who serve cross-culturally to engage in healthy grieving. A biblical understanding of loss and grief is provided, and losses related to the global pandemic will also be addressed. Finally, appropriate psychological tools to grieve in a healthy manner are described, including tips for helping children in this process.
