GriefShare: Loss of a Spouse Seminar
Sunday, August 14, 3-5pm - Valley Avon Room 206 - Cost: $5
No matter what the circumstances, grief recovery is a painful process. This special, 2-hour seminar is designed to help people facing the unique challenges after a spouse’s death. The seminar features time to talk and share if you’d like to, as well as video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and others who have navigated life after losing a spouse and who offer practical suggestions and reassurance. They share honestly about:
· What to expect in the days and months after the loss
· The surprising emotional, physical, and spiritual effects of grief
· Challenges surviving spouses face and how to cope (e.g., loneliness, new household responsibilities, changes in relationships, what to do with your spouse’s belongings)
· Why it won’t always hurt this much
Everyone who attends receives a booklet with over 30 short readings on how to live with grief and eventually rebuild your life.
