Caring for Families & Caring for Yourself: Self Care Resources for Funeral Service Professionals
About the Resources
The Funeral Service Foundation commissioned the handbook and complementing poster through the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund. Both resources are available FREE OF CHARGE to funeral service professionals.
Funeral service professionals are first responders – sometimes called “last responders” in a high-touch, high-stress environment. Effectively managing that stress is part and parcel of the vocation and essential to a funeral service professional’s well-being. Finding ways to manage stress is key to maintaining healthy relationships with loved ones, and boosts a funeral director’s capacity to compassionately serve families.
A special thank you to author Alan D. Wolfelt, PhD for his commitment to serving those who are caring for others at their time of greatest need.
