Adult Grief Group: Faces of Grief – Sep. 15-Oct. 20, 2021
September 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - October 20, 2021 @ 6:15 pm
Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare is hosting a six-week adult grief group, Faces of Grief, beginning Wednesday, Sep. 15, through Wednesday, Oct. 20, 5-6:15 pm, at its Wooster office (1900 Akron Rd., Wooster, Ohio 44691).
David Hargrave, LSW, CTP, CGGS, bereavement counseling professional with Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, will lead the six-week adult grief group. Topics covered during the Faces of Grief group include:
- Myths About Grief
- Common and Normal Grief Reactions
- Different Grieving Styles
- The Four Tasks of Mourning
- Acknowledging the Secondary Losses
- Factors That Influence the Grief Journey
- Taking Care of Yourself During the Journey of Grief
The Faces of Grief group provides a safe venue for sharing experiences, discussing key challenges, and learning about positive coping strategies along the grief journey.
These sessions are designed to help adult grievers understand the many nuances of grief, help them with processing the pain, and help them adjust to a world without their loved one. During the Faces of Grief group, participants will identify and process many of the ways that grief presents itself.
It is not necessary to share openly in a group setting to receive support. The weekly curriculum and insights from others can generate hope and clarification for one’s own grief experience.
While the event is free and open to the public, registration is required. To register, email PathwaysOfHope@lifecarehospice.org or call 330.264.4899.
