Transforming Loss: Finding Potential for Growth is an inspirational program about positive change and action by the bereaved in the aftermath of loss.  The program is appropriate for all professionals working in hospice and palliative care, counselors, clergy, funeral professionals, and any professional whose practice involves the bereaved. Ideal for community education and outreach, this program will touch the heart of anyone who has experienced loss with stories of people who have found meaning and purpose through loss. The program will offer clinicians tools to support and encourage transformative growth in grieving clients and will supply self-help advice for the bereaved.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Define posttraumatic growth and differentiate it from resilience;
2. Identify factors associated with resilience and posttraumatic growth;
3. Discuss five possible and identified areas of growth;
4. Describe ways that support groups can facilitate posttraumatic growth;
5. Describe appropriate interventive strategies that encourage posttraumatic growth;
6. Identify self-help strategies that can assist individuals who are grieving to grow even as they grieve.
