The Relevance of Restorative Art

The most important question that a grieving family asks when traumatic or unexpected death occurs is “Can we see her?” All too often the funeral profession tells the families we serve that they cannot have an open casket viewing in these circumstances. Why? The early part of the last century regularly saw trauma cases restored for open casket viewing. What changed?

This session will be led by Dominick J. Astorino, an adjunct professor at Wayne State University & Worsham College of Mortuary Science. He will examine the basic history of restorative art and how it is relevant to embalmers today. He'll also delve into a cultural shift in the United States that affected restorative art education and practices, and how its continued relevance is important to our society and profession.

This webinar will challenge the way you may view advanced restorative art cases.
