GriefShare Support - Fall 2021

Thu, July 15, 2021

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.

Join us this Summer/Fall for three opportunities to help you recover:
August 5 - Loss of a Spouse (one-time event). To register, click HERE
August 12 - November 4 – Griefshare (series of meetings).  To register, click HERE
November 11 - Surviving the Holidays (one-time event). To register, click HERE

GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Video seminar with experts
Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
