Grieving the Loss of a Parent or Sibling

September 17 – October 22, 2019

Six Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

A program for adults who have the loss of a parent or sibling. Parents and Siblings play significant roles in our lives and this loss requires a significant adjustment. This program provides educational and experiential activities with a focus on coping and re-adjustment responses to the loss.

There is no time limit to grieving. Grief is an emotional trauma which may require therapeutic attention and knowledge.
