2021 Calendar of General Meetings


Sunday, January 31, 2021
Supporting Clients Coping with Loss
Time: 7:00 PM- 8:45PM
Format: Virtual

Presenter: Connie Palmer, LCSW

Whether it is their presenting problem or a part of their life before seeking counseling, grief and loss are a part of every client's history. Supporting Clients Coping with Loss is an interactive webinar which will offer the opportunity for therapists to learn the definitions for loss, grief, mourning and resilience, understand how children, teens and adults grieve differently, identify how grief affects behavior, discern the difference between grief and depression and development and to explore interventions with grieving clients.



Please note: All General Meetings will be held at the United Methodist Church of Summit, 17 Kent Place Boulevard, Summit NJ.  Please enter at the DeForest Avenue side entrance.  

Parking is available nearby; closest is the lot on the corner of DeForest & Woodland Ave. Enter church via the driveway on DeForest Ave.
