Whitley Theological Center


Join the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas on Friday, February 2, 2018, for the organization’s annual Grief Education Institute Symposium! This year the Center is focusing on “Supporting Our Students Through Crisis and Loss.” The program will take place at the Whitley Theological Center from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and features presentations by Dr. David J. Schonfeld, Dr. Thelma Duffey, and Dr. Shane Haberstroh.


Dr. Schonfeld serves as the Director of the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement (NCSCB) at the University of Southern California. He has provided consultation and training in the aftermath of a number of school crisis events and cities within the United States and abroad, including school and community shootings in Newtown, Connecticut; Aurora, Colorado; and Townville, South Carolina. Dr. Duffey and Dr. Haberstroh represent the University of Texas at San Antonio’s College of Education and Human Development department and have been working to provide services and consultation to the Sandy Hook Elementary School and Newtown community for the past five years. This coming year, the duo is working with the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas to serve the families in the Sutherland Springs community.


In addition to the presentations, the Center will host breakout sessions for participants to learn hands-on approaches in working with children. The fee for the program is $95 and includes lunch and 5.5 continuing education units for qualified Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Licensed Professional Counselors.
