NASW-NE 2020 Annual




September 24th & 25th, 2020

Lincoln, NE




Featuring Joanne Cacciatore, Ph.D


"Bearing the Unbearable:


Helping Clients Facing Traumatic Grief"



This keynote will illuminate current research on traumatic grief and explore ways in which social workers can cultivate compassionate presence while bearing the unbearable. Using art, poetry, and case examples, Cacciatore will journey into the intimate and sacred spaces of loss based on more than two decades of practice and research experience. Joanne Cacciatore, PhD, is a tenured professor at Arizona State University in the School of Social Work where she directs the Graduate Certificate in Trauma & Bereavement. Her research and practice focus on all aspects of traumatic grief, primarily the deaths of babies and children, and homicide and suicide. With nearly 70 published papers in top tier journals like The Lancet and British Medical Journal, Dr. Cacciatore’s work has been widely read, and she is known for her humanistic approach to traumatic grief.
Her best selling book, Bearing the Unbearable: Love, loss, and the Heartbreaking Path of Grief, won the 2017 Indies Book of the Year Award. In 1996, she founded the MISS Foundation, an international NGO helping families facing the death of a child. In 2017, she started the first Carefarm in the world for families suffering traumatic grief, Selah Carefarm, that also houses 26 animals rescued from torture and abuse.
