About the Workshop

Kelsey Crowe

We’ve all been in that situation where someone we know is hurting, we want to tell them that we care—but we can’t quite figure out what to say and so we shy away. To address this phenomenon, Dr. Kelsey Crowe (bio) started up the Help Each Other Out project, which aims to make human connection in times of suffering and loss easier for patients, their loved ones, and professionals via workshops, interactive games, and talks. She also created, with illustrator Emily McDowell, the guide There Is No Good Card for This: What to Say and Do When Life Is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love. At this half-day workshop, Dr. Crowe will impart evidence-based techniques for increasing one’s emotional intelligence and learning how to offer comfort and support when someone you know is in pain due to loss, illness, divorce, or other traumatic life events.
