Description

The 2017-18 JWWFH Continuing Care Series is a five-part series of FREE sessions open to the public. Each session will address a different aspect of grief, how it affects our mental wellness, and what steps to consider if/when it does.

Each session will include a formal portion conducted by a licensed professional(s). Light refreshments will be served.

Part II: Healing Through The Holidays: Healthy and Unhealthy Coping Strategies

Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 6 pm

(session will include a free memory box craft session for all attendees)

The holidays can be an especially challenging time of year for those of us that have experienced the loss of a loved one – regardless of when the loss occurred. Additionally, the holiday season is usually jam-packed with parties, receptions, celebrations, food, beverages, and other things to distract us and keep us busy. How do we get the most out of time with surviving friends and family without overcorrecting and risking the backfire effect? How do we not simply survive the holidays but thrive by treating the season as a healthy, healing time?

Join us for session two of our five-part Continuing Care Series on Thursday, December 7, as we hear from licensed professionals on both healthy and unhealthy coping strategies. The session will be upbeat and include music, sharing (if you desire), fellowship, and refreshments.

Plan to bring photos, poems you or others have written, articles of clothing, or any other mementos of your loved ones that have passed if you would like to participate in the memory box craft portion of the program.

We hope to see you soon. Let us help make your 2017 holiday season one to remember – in positive ways.
