Each year, we keep what works and try to consider new ways of looking at grief, loss and change — and this year is no exception! Our workshop presenters are leading experts in the field of grief and loss, and you will have the opportunity to gain tools and resources for your grief journey.

You'll be able to choose from sessions that focus on defining and re-defining yourself, parenting after loss, finding meaning and self-care. We've built in opportunities for peer connections as well as time to explore Washington, D.C., together. 

View the schedule below and check out our workshops and presenters to learn more about the paths to healing at the TAPS National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp.
