Support and Encouragement for Your Grief Journey


This seminar features practical suggestions and reassurance through video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and others who have experienced the unique pain of losing a spouse. Topics discussed include what to expect in the weeks and months after a spouse’s loss, what to do with surprising emotions, how to handle changing relationships, how to handle the loneliness, what to do with your spouse’s belongings, and how to find the strength to go on.
Our Fall 2019 GriefShare support group session will meet each Sunday, August 18 through November 17 except Labor Day Weekend, September 1.  We meet Sundays at 2 p.m. in Room G111.
GriefShare is a special weekly program designed for those who are suffering the deep loss caused by the death of a loved one (parent, child, sibling, spouse, or friend).  This program provides the compassion of others who understand what you are experiencing.
These sessions are open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one (recent or not so recent). The sessions provide encouragement and help in grieving the death of your loved one. This is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling; to learn valuable information on facing life situations, and to gain renewed hope for the future.  If you or someone you know could benefit, please join us. 
We will hold a special two hour “Surviving the Holidays” on Monday, October 21 at 6:30 p.m.  This session offers tools and strategies to help you at a time of year that can be particularly difficult if you are grieving the loss of a loved one.  Please join us.
