On October 13, 2022, Duet hosted an inspiring virtual symposium designed to help family caregivers gain practical strategies to help with their caregiving journeys. International speaker and consultant on caregiving, aging, and healthcare, Dr. Aaron Blight, offered caregivers a framework for processing their experience and building resilience. Award winning educator, author, writer, and television personality, Dr. Macie P. Smith, discussed the resistance many caregivers face from their loved ones and provided tips and tools to address it.
Dr. Pauline Boss joined Duet’s Meaning & Hope Institute for a series of virtual events, including: Stress, Coping, and Resiliency: A Conversation with Dr. Boss (June 2022), Guilt, Grief, & Guideposts with Dr. Pauline Boss and Kathy Ritchie (October 2021), and a Family Caregiver Symposium with Dr. Pauline Boss and Dr. Arthur Kleinman (February 2021). With each of these virtual events, Dr. Boss not only shares her experience as an academic, researcher, clinical practitioner, and author, but also brings her personal experience as a family caregiver to provide valuable insights for building resilience and strength to live with grief and loss.
