Description

What happens when a family grapples with issues of a long-term illness and the right to die? What conversations with helping professionals allow for an open and creative process? Laurie tells the story of her husband Julian’s choice to use WA State's Death with Dignity law in 2011. Through this intimate view, we are invited into the nuanced, vital conversation about choice and responsibility central to Aid-in-Dying.

Speaker: Laurie Riepe, MA, LMHC, is a psychotherapist in private practice with couples, individuals, families and groups.
