Navigating the Holidays While Grieving
November 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
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. Presented by Jesse Bassett from the Morristown not-for-profit Good Grief.
As the Director of Education & Learning for Good Grief, Jesse Bassett works with schools, nonprofits, hospitals, hospice organizations, funeral homes, and other organizations to increase community awareness and competency in providing support to grieving children and their families. Jesse’s favorite thing about Good Grief is the incredible community of families, volunteers, and staff who inspire him with their stories.
