Love, Loss, and the Ever-Changing Human Condition
Presented by: Allison Wolff, Filmmaker, Donna Kane, MA, CT, Grief Clinician, Jewish Community Services, and Claire Fultz, Director of Mental Health, Jewish Community Services
Charlotte (2018) is a silent, dramatic film that explores the inner and outer uncertainty that comes with grief and bereavement. During this program, participants will view the short piece and engage in a moderated, thought-provoking conversation with the filmmaker. Students, filmmakers, clinicians, and community professionals are strongly encouraged to attend.
As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the relationship between identity, taboos, and grief and the impact they have on individuals
- Discuss the use of film as both a medium for expression and social practice and a direct support to individuals as part of clinical intervention
- Apply concepts from the film to work with individuals in a clinical setting, focusing primarily on how to speak honestly and directly about grief and bereavement
General Public – $37.50
