Description

Often people with disabilities have minimal if any involvement in the funeral planning process. Some people with disabilities are not even told about the death of a significant person. The reasons for not involving people with disabilities in the funeral process include care providers being afraid that people with disabilities will not understand or that they will act out in a way that will be difficult for others to deal with.

This session will address issues of people with cognitive disabilities and their unique needs as they grieve the death of a significant person. It will also address what mental health professionals can do to help people with cognitive disabilities address and process grief.
