Summary

*THIS PROGRAM WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AS A SELF-PACED PROGRAM IN THE FUTURE, AND MUST BE WATCHED LIVE*

These case studies on the preparation of decomposed remains were inspired by the families of the decedents whose families long for one last opportunity to say goodbye. This technical seminar guides the embalmer through each phase of the embalming procedure. We will begin with the traditional core elements of Disinfection, Preservation, and Restoration. The class moves forward with advanced instruction on primary, secondary, and tertiary disinfection for decomposed cases and finishes with an exploration of post mortem “Facial Cosmetic Rejuvenation.” The class focuses on open casket viewing with the use of modern and innovative post mortem surgical/embalming injection techniques for decomposed cases. Advanced training and strategic implementation of embalming chemicals for decomposed cases and tips on logistics planning for services, understanding/implementing legal authorization procedures, and family counseling/arranging for hard cases are included.

This seminar is POWER PACKED with embalming tips and also touches on the importance of acquiring proper legal authorizations, shares free resources for embalmers, and information on how to utilize proper personal protective equipment for safety while working with hazardous chemicals.
