Grief Program

Navigating the Holidays While Grieving


Wednesday November 29, 2017
7:00 PM
Presented by Jesse Bassett from the Morristown not-for-profit Good Grief. When grieving the death of someone important in your life, the holidays can be a particularly difficult time from an emotional and practical perspective.

Watching others who are celebrating while we feel sad, lonely, and overwhelmed can be painful and isolating. In this presentation we will explore concrete ways you can successfully anticipate and navigate these challenges surrounding the holidays, while also engaging in meaningful ways to remember your person who died.
