This presentation will focus on coping with loss during the holiday season.
Holiday time can be an extremely stressful time for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. For most people, the holidays are a time spent with family and friends. When a special friend or family member is no longer with loved ones, celebrating a holiday often emphasizes that loss.
Featured speaker Wendy Hournbuckle will share her personal experience with loss and how that loss affects the holiday season for her and her family. She will give suggestions on how to cope with the festivities of the holiday season, a time when everyone around you seems to be celebrating, and you are grieving.The program is free and open to everyone.
