Dealing with Grief During the Holidays on December 17th
With the holiday season approaching, we are constantly bombarded by images of happy families together sharing the joy of the season. If you are a griever, however, this may not be the picture that you can imagine at this point. Holidays, birthdays, or other days that were a special part of your family traditions trigger painful feelings of loss and grief.
While there are other critical dates and times that affect grieving people, the holiday season is the biggest stimulus to provoke memories and feelings about important people in our lives who have died or who are no longer present at our holiday celebrations and rituals because of divorce or other estrangements.
This one hour seminar will provide suggestions for getting through the holiday season with a minimum of emotional pain. There is no effective way to completely avoid the pain of loss, but there are ways to be kinder to ourselves while the holidays are being celebrated in full force all around us.
LivingProof Recovery will be hosting the Grief during the Holidays seminar hosted by Dr. Donna Waddell, Grief Recovery Specialist, on Tuesday, December 17th from 1-2 pm. You can RSVP on Facebook at this link.
