The Cremation Association of North America (CANA), in conjunction with Funeral Professionals Peer Support, celebrates its First Year of peer support meetings tomorrow night, Tuesday, June 21.
In honor of the one-year anniversary of these meetings, Michael Dixon will open the meeting by sharing his personal journey that led him to founding Funeral Professionals Peer Support.
Open to everyone across North America, no registration is required to attend. Click here for more information and a link to the meeting.
Here’s what CANA says you can expect:
- “Join our regular third Tuesday meeting for Funeral Professionals Peer Support. This meeting is open to anyone who serves their communities during some of their worst moments, providing care to the grieving. That includes everyone from the front office to the back room, chapel to gravesite, suited to coveralls — and everyone in-between. As a peer support meeting, all are invited to share personal experiences and connect with people who understand what you experience everyday.”
- “Peer support is provided by peers, for peers. Founded on key principles such as respect and shared responsibility, it’s a group of individuals with similar experiences who encourage and assist each other. Everyone is expected to treat others with care and understanding. Everyone will be given space to share their story, but no one will be “called on” because respectful listening can also be beneficial.”
