Grief and Loss in Agriculture

November 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

| Free

November 18: “Grief and Loss in Agriculture” virtually at 1 p.m. ET (12 p.m. CDT), hosted by The Rural Resiliency Project and the Cultivating Resiliency Program. Experiencing grief and loss as ag producers is an all-too-common experience. However, not all loss is recognized such as loss of the passing on of the legacy of the operation, loss of dreams, and downsizing. These losses along with death, injury, illness, natural disasters, and loss of livestock can be overwhelming and impact the family and employees. In this webinar we will explore losses the ag community experiences, how those losses impact an individual and family, and different types of grief. Monica McConkey will be leading the session and will be joined by farmers/agriculturalists with experience in agriculturally related stress. Monica Kramer McConkey, Rural Mental Health Specialist, and LPC has 25+ years of experience in the behavioral health field as a child and adolescent counselor, program supervisor, and administrator. Monica grew up on a farm and has an intimate understanding of the dynamics that contribute to farm stress and its impact on farm families. Monica is very much in touch with the agricultural way of life. For more information and to register, visit the registration page.
