Healing Loss: A Residential Workshop for Montefiore Associates


June 5–7, 2024


Stony Point Conference Center, Stony Point, NY


Meals and Overnight Accommodations Provided


Workshop is FREE for all participants


Many of us serve as caregivers, both in our work with patients and in our own families. Caregiving can have a profound effect on our personal and professional lives and can bring love and gratification. It also can bring stress and other emotional burdens, especially if we do not have the opportunity to take care of ourselves and can bring grief when we lose people we care for. The stresses and burdens of caregiving have only increased for many of us during the Covid pandemic. Over the past year, many have experienced ongoing grief and loss and have not had time or space to begin to grieve and heal. This workshop will provide a safe, supportive, and nurturing space for Montefiore providers and staff to relieve stress, begin to grieve and heal our losses, and better care for ourselves.

The Montefiore Healing Arts Program and Human Resources are pleased to offer Healing Loss, a 3-day residential workshop at a nearby retreat center. All Montefiore associates are welcome!

  • A powerful experiential and educational program providing participants with the opportunity to identify and work through some of the losses, grief and changes that often occur in caregivers’ lives, both personal and professional

  • Led by experienced facilitators in a safe, supportive and confidential setting

  • Offers ways to release some of the emotional ‘baggage’ and ‘unfinished business’ that can get in the way of our being truly present for ourselves and others

  • Participants will leave with new tools for self-care and healing to help build resilience when facing stress in the future

Please note that Covid-19 vaccination is required for participation.

This workshop is limited to 20 participants and registration is required. Continuing Education (CEU) and Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits are available to physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers.

Please note that participants sleep at the retreat center Wednesday and Thursday nights.
