In this illuminating workshop, Dr. Tashel Bordere offers an inside look at historical and modern-day healing rituals for death and non-death loss in the Black community. Together, attendees will explore the multifaceted process of grief and coping, the lived experiences of trauma loss and “suffocated grief,” and culturally responsive after-death-care rituals for both the deceased and the bereaved, among other enriching topics. 

Dr. Brodere is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Science and a State Extension Specialist in Youth Development at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
