A Workshop on All Kinds of Losses and the Many Faces of Grief
A Safe Place to Bring Your Questions and Concerns
This workshop will be offered on two different dates:

Some of the issues to be discussed:
Is there a normal/healthy way to grieve?
What should I say or not say to a grieving person?
How long does grief last?
What are some helpful “survival” strategies following loss?
Why is suicide so difficult to talk about?
How do you face the “aftershocks” that come with grief?
Is anger a normal part of the grief experience?
