All session information, times and topics can be found below. Participants can register for all sessions online at thomasmcafee.com. The three seminar series is a public outreach project sponsored by Thomas McAfee Funeral Homes that aims to provide a resource to those experiencing grief in their personal and professional lives. Dr. Bill Hoy, Clinical Professor of Medical Humanities at Baylor University, will speak at the two day event, which helps attendees understand how to cope with death and bereavement. Prior to his move to Baylor, Dr. Hoy directed the clinical counseling program (bereavement, social work, and pastoral care) for a large southern California hospice and community bereavement center. In addition to his graduate education in counseling, Bill holds the Fellow in Thanatology, the highest professional certification for advanced practice professionals in the field of death, dying, and bereavement.
