This week, ASD traveled to Nashville to attend the ICCFA Convention and Expo. We gained some wonderful insights this year from the funeral professionals in attendance, other vendors, the wonderful keynote speakers and our own team while in Nashville. Since 11 ASD employees attended and we were exhibiting in Booth 1111, we thought it would be fitting to share 11 things we learned at this year’s ICCFA Convention.

ASD is pleased to share this Guest Blog Post from Ben Wrigley, a counselor working in Kent, UK. In this post, Ben draws several parallels between counseling and funeral service, providing three principals that can help anyone serving in a caring profession. He offers some great tips on communication, empathy and the importance of self-care for those working in the funeral profession.
