As the holidays approach, many of us will gather with family and friends, whether in person or virtually. More often than not, these gatherings will include reminiscences about loved ones, re-telling of funny family stories, sharing time-honored traditions, or creating new traditions. This year many of us will deal with spending the holidays alone as we seek survival tips for living in the era of a pandemic. Dealing with loneliness, remembrance, and change, so welcomed during joyful times, can be even more difficult for those coping with loss.
For family, friends, and neighbors who are facing grief after the death of a loved one, the holidays may instead be a time filled with pain and sadness. And even for those for whom grief is not as fresh, the holidays may serve as an annual reminder of the loss—not only of that person but of tradition and celebration. For many of us, being confined to our homes has also created feelings of depression and sadness.
If you or someone you know is struggling with issues related to loss, we encourage you to ZOOM into this year’s “Hope for the Holidays and Beyond”, which is designed to address all of these concerns.
There will be 3 age-appropriate virtual classes, with trained professionals, specially tailored to meet the needs of each age group, as well as an opportunity to participate in art therapy. Please register by November 13.
(Saturday) 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
