Helping Yourself and Others Through the Grieving Process
The one thing about a personal tragic event is that it’s not experienced alone. The
ripples reach far beyond what we expect and that means managing not only our
own grief, but also that of others.
Patricia will share ways to support other people who are grieving and ways to build
resiliency to face our own grief and move forward.
