WHEELING, IL — Long nights, family obligations, and the strain of a busy workplace are often the hallmarks of the holiday season—but a connection with your fellow funeral professionals can help alleviate some of the pressure. Join Funeral Professionals Peer Support (FPPS) and the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) for a Peer Support Meeting just in time for the end of the year crush on Tuesday, December 21, 8pm ET / 7pm CT/ 5pm PT.
Christina Walton will facilitate our conversation in December to help you connect with your funeral professional peers to both find support and inspire others. “I look forward to being together for our well being.” Walton is a registered therapist who specializes in bereavement and loss, and she is president of the Children’s Grief Foundation of Canada.
