About the Twelfth Annual Colloquium

Death remains the one great certainty with some two million Americans dying each year even though medical advances have not only extended life but death as well. Even so, honest and open conversation about death and dying continue to be avoided by a large segment of the American public. Denial is a commonplace response when dying strikes close to home. Potential stresses impacting dying individuals, their loved ones, and those who care for them include impaired mental, social, and physical functioning, pain, depression, anxiety, and associated mental health conditions.

This year’s colloquium explores the many challenges, perspectives  and strategies for addressing the dying experience and its aftermath in honest and positive fashion with the intent of maximizing the well-being of all individuals that it impacts.
