The York Chapter of Not One More, a nonprofit whose mission is to educate families about the hazards of heroin and other drug abuse, will host a free public talk by bereavement expert Amy Florian.
Florian combines the best of neuroscience and psychology with a good dose of humor in teaching people about how to prepare for, cope with, and support their loved ones through all the losses and transitions of life. She holds a master’s degree and is a Fellow in Thanatology, the highest level of certification in the field of grief studies.
Florian taught a graduate class at Loyola University of Chicago for almost 10 years as well as undergraduate classes at three other universities, and she has worked with more than 2,000 grieving people in the past 25 years. In 2008, she founded Corgenius, a company that specializes in training professionals about death, loss, aging, and transition, and she consults with firms, corporations, and individuals nationwide.
Florian has a regular blog on Huffington Post, published over 150 articles, and is an award-winning author. Her latest book, which won a 2017 International Book Award, is titled “A Friend Indeed: Help Those You Love When They Grieve.” She was also honored as an “Influential Woman in Business” from the National Association of Women Business Owners, and she is a 2017 recipient of the Chicago Business Journal’s Women of Influence award.
