Community Education

Our Community Education events are designed to develop community knowledge and skills around end-of-life and grief related topics that can be applied to daily life.


CaringMatters' Community Education Series

CaringMatters' Community Education Series is designed to develop community knowledge and skills around end-of-life and grief related topics that can be applied to daily life. Our meaningful educational events and discussions help build a caring and compassionate community. Workshops are held four times each year.

Professional Development 

CaringMatters hosts yearly professional development seminars for social workers, psychologists, counselors, and other mental health professionals. Continuing education credits (CEUs) are available for social workers licensed in Maryland. Other professionals can submit the Certificate of Attendance, provided to all participants, to the appropriate board for consideration for CEUs. These free seminars are also informative for physicians, nurses, child life specialists, and other allied health professionals, as well as CaringMatters Staff and Volunteers and Caregivers. 

Community Workshops

CaringMatters' staff are available to provide free community workshops as public service to groups who want to learn more about various aspects of end-of-life care, grief, advance care planning and many other related issues.  Staff and affiliated experts can address churches, schools, businesses, and civic organizations.  This service is part of the organization’s effort to facilitate dialogue and educate the community about end-of-life issues that everyone must face at some point in their lives.
