    • Lori Hardoon, LCSW, Director, JASA Partners In Dignity
    • Amy Chalfy, LMSW, Chief Program Officer, JASA
    • Rob Greenberger, LCSW, MBA, Chief Executive Officer, SYJCC
    • Stewart Ain, Co-Author of The Living Memories Project: Legacies That Last

    9:30- 11:00 AM Keynote Panel

    “Grieving allows us to heal, to remember with love rather than pain. It is a sorting process. One by one you let go of things that are gone and you mourn for them. One by one you take hold of the things that have become a part of who you are and build again.” – Rachel Naomi Remen

    The Keynote Panel will be discussing working with people who are grieving or seeking bereavement counseling and support through each of their unique lenses: The author/ educator, the music therapist, chaplain/spiritual counselor and clinical social worker.

    Panelists:
    • Meryl Ain, Ed.D., Co-Author of The Living Memories Project: Legacies That Last and Author of My Living Memories Project Journal
    • Kaitlyn Kelly, MS, MT-BC, LCAT, Hospice Music Therapist at the Hebrew Home in Riverdale and Adjunct Professor Music Therapy Department, Molloy College, Rockville Centre, NY
    • Meredith Lisagor, M Div, BCC Director of Spiritual Care and Education at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West
    • Judith Pollack, LCSW, Private Practitioner and past Clinical Coordinator for Partners In Dignity

    11:00- 11:15 AM Break with Exhibitors

    11:15- 12:45 PM Concurrent Sessions (1.5 Hours)

    1. Crisis of Faith
    A panel of distinguished religious leaders and an expert social worker will discuss how despite a crisis of faith, people can often times draw strength from their beliefs in coping with a loss.

    Panelists:
    • Seemi Ahmed, Muslim Chaplain, Board of Trustees of the Islamic Center of Long Island, Chaplain at Hofstra University and Co-chair of the New York chapter of Muslim Peace Coalition

    • Judith Pollack, LCSW- Private Practitioner and past Clinical Coordinator for Partners In Dignity

    2. Traumatic Loss
    This workshop is intended to address the unique aspects of traumatic loss compared and contrasted with many other forms of loss. A traumatic loss is one that overwhelms the resources of the bereaved, leaving them feeling helpless, with their view of the world shattered.

    Presenter:
    • Mansour (Max) Banilivy, Ph.D., Director of Family Wellness Center and Direct of education, clinical training and field placement for the Network of PSCH and Pederson Krag Center Organizations.

    3. The Mindful Practitioner
    This workshop provides an opportunity for participants to actually experience a mindful, contemplative practice that incorporates watercolors, silence and reflection.The process brings the participants into the present moment easily, without undo striving. “Dropping color” and paying attention to the movement and blending of color slows down the “mindlessly-chattering mind” replacing it with a more focused, mindful awareness. This meditation method has been used in professional workshops with social workers, educators, nurses, hospice workers and students and requires no art background; only an openness to the process. All materials will be provided.

    Presenter:
    • Maureen E. Carey, LCSW, Ph.D. Professor of Social Work at Molloy College. She is also a practicing artist and co author

    4. Children’s Grief: Grieving in the Context of Child Development and the Facilitation of Healthy Coping 
    One in five children will experience the death of someone that is close to them by the age of 18. This workshop is designed to provide practical information about age appropriate grief reactions.

    Presenters:
    • Michelle Graff, LCSW, Bereavement Specialist and Certified Resolve Through Sharing Coordinator at Good Shepherd Hospice and Palliative Care Social Worker for Catholic Health Services
    • Carolyn Lisi-Haas, LCSW, Bereavement Specialist at Good Shepherd Hospice.

    5. A Family Grieves: The Dying Child and the Impact on the Family
    This workshop will explore the many issues involved when a family experiences the dying process and loss of a child.

    Presenter:
    • Linda Norris Stertz, LCSW-R, 
    Social Work Manager at MJHS Hospice and Formerly Program Manager of Pediatric Palliative Care at VNSNY.

    6. The Music Never Stops: Music Therapy in End-of-Life and Grief
    The session will explore music therapy goals and interventions in end-of-life and grief including anticipatory grief. *No musical background is required or needed – all are welcome!

    Presenter:
    • Kaitlyn Kelly, MS, MT-BC, LCAT,Hospice Music Therapist at the Hebrew Home, Riverdale, NY and Adjunct Professor Music Therapy Department, Molloy College, Rockville Centre, NY.

    7. The Empty Chair at the Table
    Grieving the loss of a loved one is a deep and difficult challenge at any time. But the holiday season can magnify your sense of loss and mourning.

    The Presidential Election
    Course #1: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM * Instructor: Alan Weisman
    Mondo Bizarro! Will the G.O.P. survive the election? Will the country survive the election? Does Bernie have a future in politics? Answers to all this and more as we analyze and psychoanalyze this year in politics.

    Hollywood on the Campaign Trail
    Course #2: 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM * Instructor: Max Alvarez
    A high octane journey down the Hollywood campaign trail with scenes and discussions of such poli-sci classics as The Candidate (1972), The Best Man (1964), The Great Man Votes (1939), and others. Truth may be stranger than fiction during this election year, but these and other films of the machinations behind U.S. political campaigning never cease to be timely, provocative, and entertaining.

    Session 2: Sunday, July 31
    The Senate and the House Elections
