Empathy in Times of Suffering

February 1 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Good Grief of Northwest Ohio presents a special event featuring Dr. Kelsey Crowe, from 8am to 10:30am. Dr. Crowe teaches social work at California State University, and co-author of There Is No Good Card for This: What To Say and Do When Life is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love. Her work has been featured on several media outlets such as NPR, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, BuzzFeed,, and others.

There Is No Good Card for This: What To Say and Do When Life is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love (HarperCollins, 2017) blends well-researched, actionable advice with no-nonsense humor to help you feel confident in connecting with anyone experiencing grief, loss, illness, or any other difficult situation by identifying Empathy Roadblocks: How to get over yourself so you can help others; and Empathy Basics: What you can do and say to be supportive; along with interactive group exercises to help you feel more comfortable taking action.
