Active Grieving: Understanding Responses to Loss
Grieving the death of a loved one is a unique and personal process; yet, we often find similarities with others that help us know we are not alone. Please join us for a 4 week educational series focusing on increasing participants’ practical understanding of grief as an active process that has both common and distinct characteristics. Participants will have opportunity throughout to share personal experiences in a small group discussion format. It is recommended that participants wait at least two months after a death before attending.
Free and open to the public. Facilitated by Katherine Isaacson, LCPC. Contact us for more info 406-728-8848.
