Coping with the Holidays – Skillbuilders

November 20, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Holidays can be difficult days in the grief process. That empty chair at the table is so obvious. The traditions we share can be brutal reminders of our loss.

Sometimes the anticipation preceding these days can be even more painful than the day itself.

Memories of past holidays, stressful or joyful, are brought to mind. Holiday music and decor in stores may activate our grief.

Although we can’t prevent these triggers, we can choose how we react. Come learn some new coping skills with people who share your experience.

9:30 to 9:45 am – Coffee, meet, greet, support

9:45 to 11:30 – Program

There is no charge to attend this session and no pre-registration is necessary.
