A Grief Share Surviving the Holidays seminar, held Nov. 20, at Christ United Methodist Church at 8645 E. Brainerd Road from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in room A-9.
The two-hour seminar, led by psychologist Amy Perkins, offers practical, actionable strategies for making it through the holiday season.
Organizers said, "You will view a video featuring advice from people in grief who’ve faced the holidays after their loss. You’ll hear insights from respected Christian counselors, pastors, and psychologists. You’ll receive a Holiday Survival Guide with practical strategies, encouraging words, helpful exercises, Q/As, and journaling ideas for daily survival through the holiday season."
At Grief Share Surviving the Holidays, you’ll meet with other grieving people who have an understanding of what you’re going through. They won’t judge you or force you to share, but will accept you where you are and will offer comfort and support. “When I went to Grief Share. I realized there are different ways to grieve," said an attender.
"Your holiday season won’t be easy; your emotions may ambush you and suck you under at times. But you can choose to walk through this season in a way that honors your loved one and puts you on the path of health and healing."
