Event description

Description

This workshop will start by acknowledging the loss and each person’s unique experience with bravery. It will offer ideas on the central importance of pursuing meaning and purpose. A framework for human flourishing will help identify what fully engages us (now or in the past). Resilience will be explored, as well as action steps based on the insights gained from the workshop.

Event Details

Registration is $15 and a light lunch will be served at 12:30 pm. The program will be recorded and begin promptly at 1:00 pm. Continuing education is not available.

About the Presenters

Eileen O'Grady, PhD, RN, NP, PCC, is an Adult Nurse Practitioner and Wellness Coach and has practiced primary care for over 2 decades. She recently co-authored and edited the textbook, Advanced Practice Nurses: An Integrative Approach 6th ed. (Elsevier) published in 2018. She has extensive experience in health care, uses an evidence-based approach with people to reverse or entirely prevent disease and she is an expert on intentional change in adults. She believes deeply that more attention must be paid to getting us unstuck from lifestyles that do not support wellness. Dr. O’Grady has a practice that includes coaching individuals on a wide range of issues and speaks all over the U.S. emphasizing the importance of extreme self-care, high-level wellness and how to identify and remedy a life that is out balance.

Paul Tschudi, EdS, MA, LPC, has over 25 years of experience working with people facing grief, loss and life transitions. He maintained a private counseling practice for over 15 years before his faculty appointment at the George Washington University. His interest in end-of-life issues was born out of the experience of serving as a medic in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. Paul began developing and teaching courses on grief, loss and life transition in 1994 when he developed the first counseling course that focused on grief and loss. This eventually led to both graduate and undergraduate courses, focused on resilience and normalizing the journey through life transitions with a client-centered approach rather the diagnostic/medical model approach. He has worked extensively with the Veteran community. He is a licensed counselor in DC and serves on the advisory boards of the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing and Tragedy Assistance Programs for Survivors (TAPS). He is a sought-after lecturer, story teller and workshop facilitator.
