Ellen Goodman Q&A Screen Grab

Part Two: Q&A Video Series with Ellen Goodman

Posted on 03/22/2016

In this week’s Talking Matters, we will continue our video Q&A series with Ellen Goodman, founder of The Conversation Project, asking her to share her responses to some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive at the organization.

Ranking in at number two — “How have these conversations gone in your family since founding The Conversation Project?”

Ellen’s answer is surprising and heartfelt. Admitting that even her comedian daughter wanted to do almost anything to avoid having the conversation, and jokingly replied, “Couldn’t we go to lunch instead?”

Have you had similar experiences having the conversation with your family?

    Having the conversation allows people to explain their care giving and exit strategy.

    Waiting is not a quality option.
