Let’s Have Dinner and Talk about Death

DODDeath. Does the simple mention of the word make you uncomfortable? Michael Hebb, inaugural MCDM Teaching Fellow, and MCDM Associate Director Scott Macklin are combining a topic not often talked about (but should be) with the act of eating a meal in a program called Let’s Have Dinner and Talk about Death.

  1. Hello,

    Thanks to your Twitter feed, I had the good fortune to discover your site: .  Brilliant!  Thank you for all your hard work in this common effort of ours.

    Allow me to take this opportunity to introduce myself and say hello. My name is Richard Wagner.  I’m a psychotherapist and sex therapist here in Seattle. I am the author of the newly published — The Amateur’s Guide To Death and Dying; Enhancing the End of Life. 

    I’ve been working with sick, senior, elder, and dying people, in hospital, hospice and home settings for over 30 years.  I facilitate support groups for care-providers and clinical personnel as well as provide grief counseling for survivors both individually and in groups settings.  I was honored with the prestigious UCSF Chancellor’s Award for Public Service back in 1999 for this very work.

    I design, develop, and produce long and short term in-service training seminars for helping and healing professionals.  And I am the founder of the nonprofit organization, PARADIGM; Enhancing Life Near Death.

    At any rate, I hope we can connect at some point and get to know one another better.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    All the best,

    Richard Wagner, M.Div., Ph.D., ACS
