This special, one time class will be held on Sunday, December 2 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

The seminar features video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death and who offer practical suggestions and reassurance. These people share honestly about:

  • Being prepared for surprising emotions that may hit over the holidays
  • What to do about traditions and other coming changes
  • How to handle holiday parties and invitations
  • How to survive potentially awkward moments with other people
  • Where to find comfort, strength, and hope in a seemingly hopeless time
Those who attend will receive a Survival Guide filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas, and exercises for daily help through the holiday season.

There are Three Components of a GriefShare Support Group

Video Seminar
GriefShare is a weekly video seminar which feature some of the nation’s foremost experts on grief recovery topics. Each seminar is facilitated by caring people who have experienced grief and have a desire to walk alongside you through this journey. Small group discussion time allows you to talk about the content of the video  and how you are dealing with the death of your loved one.
Support Group
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal Study and Journaling

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
The cost to participate is $15 and covers the cost of your workbook.   Scholarships are available.. Light refreshments will also be provided at each session.
