This symposium aims to introduce an innovative bereavement counselling service originated from Australia. The service seeks to alleviate grief of the bereaved through the process of tearing old clothes of the deceased into shreds and reweaving them into new products. This process allows the bereaved to relocate their beloved within their hearts and move forward. By involving the disabled in the reweaving process, this service also provides opportunities for these individuals to enhance their self-esteem and self-efficacy. We are honoured to have the Project Director of Woven Memories to share with us her reweaving experience in Australia. As well, a scholar from local university will explain the theoretical background of the project, and a social worker from Tung Wah Group of Hospitals will share with us his or her frontline experience regarding the project. Professionals in the field of social service are cordially invited to participate in this symposium.
本研討會旨在介紹一套源自澳洲並首次引入香港的嶄新善别服務,藉著破碎及重織過世親人的衣物,轉化喪親者的哀傷,讓他們能在心中重置過世親人的位置,繼續向新生活邁進。而重織過程亦包括殘疾人士參與,藉此强化他們的自尊心和自我效能感。本研討會很榮幸邀得計劃創辦人分享其在澳洲的重織經驗,加上本地大學學者講解計劃背後的理論基礎,並由社工分享實踐經驗,誠意邀請社會服務業界人士參與。

The symposium will be conducted in both Cantonese and English.
