CONTINUING EDUCATION SEMINAR

 

Why Do We Have Funerals?

The consumer has changed. Rituals have changed and taken on different means of being shared. These changes have resulted in a lack of understanding of why we have funerals. It is the role of those in funeral service to provide that education to their families and community. It can be, however, difficult to put what we understand into words. Using Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s Hierarchy of Purposes we can more effectively communicate the “WHY” behind funerals. 

What Makes a Healing Funeral?

The change in the consumers’ understanding of the funeral ceremony itself makes it difficult to help them plan a funeral that is healing for their family. If they don’t understand the “WHY” of the funeral, how will they ever understand the various elements of that create a healing funeral experience. It is the role of those in funeral service to provide that education to their families and community. It can be, however, difficult to put what we understand into words. Pairing Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s Hierarchy of Purposes with his Heart of the Funeral Experience we can more effectively educate families and help them plan a meaning funeral experience.
