Hillcrest Hospice Care to screen “Soul Injury”

The Hillcrest Hospice Bereavement Services team invites you to a free video screening of “Soul Injury: Liberating Unmourned Loss & Unforgiven Guilt.”

Join us on Thursday, September 14, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Grand Hall at Hillcrest Country Estates Grand Lodge (located at 6021 Grand Lodge Ave, Papillion). Doors open at 5 p.m. A light meal is complimentary with prior registration.

National lecturer and author Deborah Grassman, CEO, Opus Peace, cared for more than 10,000 dying veterans over a 30-year career. Now she shares what those veterans taught her about the burden of soul injury, an emotional wound caused by unmourned loss and unforgiven guilt or shame. Learn how soul injury has the potential to affect us all long before a serious illness and how to respond to soul injury during this thought-provoking educational program.

“The ‘Soul Injury’ video is designed to help professionals in health care, social work and related fields to better understand how to deal with trauma, grief and loss,” said Valerie Height, Bereavement Coordinator. “The program will also help those who have experienced soul injury themselves to know it is okay to be emotionally vulnerable.”

Two CE credits, with completion of an online exam, are available for $10 cash or check. CE’s are offered for social workers, nurses, clergy, funeral directors, counselors and more. This webinar is approximately 90 minutes with a 30-minute post-program discussion required for CE credits. A panel of professionals, including a psychiatrist, chaplain and war veteran, will lead the discussion.

Registration is requested online at: hillcresthealth.com/events/soul-injury. Please register by Thursday, September 7, as seating is limited.
