“Concrete Tips for Working with Grieving Clients”

About This Webinar

If emotions are analogous to weather systems, then grief is the equivalent of the Category 5 hurricane. Grief is flattening; it often leaves people mentally disorganized and emotionally drained. How can you, as a financial professional, interact with your grievers in the most effective way? In this engaging webinar presentation, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and grief counselor, Libby Palomeque, answers that question with a combination of theory and practice.

The session begins with a brief overview of grief theory, including some recent paradigm shifts that move beyond “stages.” The second portion of the presentation will focus on the application of this theory using practical techniques and tools. The webinar concludes with insights into how to protect your own emotions when you must enter the eye of the storm with your clients. Whether you are naturally empathetic, or empathetically challenged, this session will broaden your understanding and enhance your skills.


Attending this webinar will help you:

  • Understand what the griever is experiencing.
  • Apply that knowledge in ways that make your interactions more meaningful and productive.
  • Protect your own emotional well-being.
  • Discover new confidence in interacting with people who are in pain.
