Managing Grief at Holiday Times Workshops 15 and 21 Nov 2012

Managing Grief at Holiday Times

The Grief Centre is pleased to again present two seminars for bereaved people and those who support them.

  • Thursday 15 November, 2012, 7-9 pm at The Grief Centre counselling room, 214 Universal Drive, Henderson (venue may change depending on numbers—registration essential)
  • Wednesday 21st November, 2012, 7-9 pm at The Grief Centre, 92 Hinemoa St, Birkenhead.

For bereaved people, Christmas, holidays, and anniversaries can be a painful time and often approached with dread. They may be times of intense loneliness, sadness, and overwhelming emptiness. This seminar will give you the opportunity to meet and talk with others who may be experiencing similar feelings, as well as gaining some more practical suggestions on ways to get through this difficult time. We hope this seminar will be useful for those who have experienced a loss, as well as those in the community who may work or support people affected by grief and loss.

The workshop will be facilitated by Carol Blair, Manager of The Grief Centre and social worker by profession.

The workshop will finish with time for a cup of tea and the chance to talk with others.

Registration essential—space is limited particularly at Henderson. Please phone 09 4181457 or email info@griefcentre.org.nz
