The Lifting the Lid International Festival of Death and Dying 2023 took place over the weekend of 17th November 2023. Founded and run by Jo Dagless and Victoria Keen, this year’s festival was, as always, packed with interesting talks and fascinating insights into a wonderfully varied selection of subjects related to death, dying and bereavement.
Rallying Round: Loss and Bereavement Support in the Work Environment
whiteballoon was delighted to be chosen to host a session on ‘Rallying Round: Loss and Bereavement Support in the Work Environment’. Below is an edited version of our talk.
Our two guest speakers, Dr Lucy Hone and Faith Holloway, are both experts in the field of loss, grief and bereavement support.
Dr Lucy Hone is regarded as a thought leader in the field of resilience psychology, she is the author of ‘Resilient Grieving‘ and hosted one of the top 20 TED talks in 2020, The Three Secrets of Resilient People.
Faith Holloway leads the Compassionate Employers programme at Hospice UK. Faith is a frequent speaker on the topic of death and grief in the workplace and a regular contributor to industry publications.
I am sure that, like us, you will find it an extremely interesting and informative insight into this very important subject.
Thank you to Lucy and Faith for giving their precious time to talk to us, and to Jo and Victoria from Lifting the Lid for hosting such a vibrant and interesting festival.
