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.
The symposium will be conducted in both Cantonese and English.
